Hot Fishing + Cooler Weather - Wilderness North

Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

Hot Fishing + Cooler Weather

Alan CheesemanIf you remember from last week’s fishing report, Graham Saunders forecasted a shocking dip in temperature to just above freezing during the weekend of the full moon…Hopefully our guests up north stayed warm and cozy!

Since Graham’s last report, I have been more conscious of the weather and casually thinking about what this year’s fall and winter might be like. Last weekend I dropped in at Mojikit Channel Lodge to visit with Boyce and Alma and was again reminded that September is just around the corner. This trip seemed to signal fall is in the air and cooler temperatures ahead. During our flight I could see the slightest of colour change beginning to show in the forest canopy below, and the air temperatures at altitude were noticeably cooler than they have been the past few weeks. Over a cup of hot tea, the best way to take the chill out of the morning air, Boyce mentioned the geese migration south had started already….it seems early. Then again, everything seems to be happening almost a month early this year; hopefully that won’t be the case when it comes to freeze-up!

While fall might be looming ahead, summer is not over yet, and there is still some great fishing to be had as our latest round of guests found out this past week.

Congrats to a fresh class of master anglers and, as always, it’s nice to hear from you!
