Countdown to Close - Wilderness North

Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

Countdown to Close

Alan Cheeseman -Wilderness North presidentIt seems like it was just yesterday that I was writing to you about our “countdown”  to opening. And here it is the end of August  and we are “counting” the days until we close.

Midwest Flyers

Our big lodge up on the Albany River – Miminiska has now seen its last guests of the season, an interesting mix of private pilots and wildlife biologists. The pilots were organized by Dave Weiman of the Midwest Flyer Magazine. All 17 amazing young men in the group flew in to our 2500 foot grass strip in their own private planes. You can see a bit more of them in the side bar photo.

Also in camp on it’s closing days was a group of six hardy explorers tracking Woodland Caribou. Their very interesting project is also described in a side bar story on the left – or you may hear a complete report on the project’s goals and progress in this week’s podcast – listen by clicking here.

Meryl and Bernard are back at Makokibatan, and they have the report from our other lodge on the Albany – while Tyler brings us up to date on Striker’s Point Lodge out on Whitewater Lake, where guests will enjoy some great angling through the third week of September.

Lake levels along both the Ogoki and Albany River watersheds are exceptionally high as dams are pouring water through at a vigorous pace.

Joe looks at fall fishing – and highlights a few new and very interesting products for anglers.  So read on and enjoy!
