Greetings from Thunder Bay - Wilderness North

Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

Greetings from Thunder Bay

Alan Cheeseman and a WN OtterIt’s summer in Ontario and the weather proves it. We are having very warm days with lots of sunshine.
We know many of our US friends are sweltering in the July heat wave, so 86 is not all that hot by comparison, however, it sure feels hot here.

This “summer” weather pattern, has definitely affected the angling. It seems the fish are deep, and the larger Walleye are all a “little lazy” even up at our hottest trophy Walleye destination – Makokibatan Lodge. While angling at our outposts is good, with lots of fish being caught, the very big Pike and Walleye are a little elusive.

In just two days, the US and Canadian soldiers elected to be this year’s guests will arrive here in Thunder Bay, and move right up to the Albany River’s Miminiska Lodge, for the fourth consecutive year. We are always excited to welcome them here to the cool boreal forest as part of Project Healing Waters, our designated charity.

Here is a special shout out to Ed Newby, a retired captain with American Airlines, who has faithfully coordinated the reception and second leg of flying to Thunder Bay from the Chicago area using his own planes and flying talent. He is a true patriot, and it will be good to see Ed again.

Out hightlight destination this week is Musgrave Lake outpost cabin. This solar powered exceptionally clean cabin is every angler’s dream come true, if it’s a complete solitary experience they are seeking.

To help you learn more, our PODCAST this week is a chat with Mel Mathews from Michigan who explains how guests at Musgrave actually have the advantage of two lakes for the price of one. CLICK HERE To listen
