We have finally come to the time of year when we get a bit of a breather. And while the Master Angler count goes up (Whitewater, Dawn, and Opichuan) so do the temperatures. Summer has finally arrived, although it is still rainy and cooler than normal.
Joe Pichey had the chance to chase after the Makokibatan brookies, and gives us a report from his trip and an update on our outpost destination groups. And for the record, just because a destination is NOT mentioned in his report, does not mean fishing is bad – it really means that for the past week no guests were reporting in from that destination.
Tyler continues to chronicle the power of Whitewater Lake. While new guests have arrived at Makokibatan Lodge – we’ll have their story next week – the Miminiska staff has had a break, allowing Manager Tristan Yusak and a few of the team members to angle a bit on their own. Plus his report has a photo of a “mystery” fish that Gord Ellis (left) has identified for us as a Burbot. We have caught them ice fishing at Waweig Lake, but not that often.
And finally, congrats to Chris Clemmons, who together with his fishing partner won the Cabela’s International Walleye Tournament this past weekend at Devil’s Lake in North Dakota. The official news release is at our download page or you can read the sidebar summary story of the event on the left. Chris also sent us a brief column about this exciting event which you can read from the link above.
