It’s spring-well nearly spring. OK-there was frost on the wings of the airplanes this morning, and though the lake ice is out – snow squalls were reported from our Albany River lodges – way up north. That is what we call nearly Spring.
Guests have been fishing from a few of our outpost cabins, and two of our three lodges, so next week we will begin our weekly fishing report service to you. I can report that lake levels are fine, thanks to abundant winter snows and late winter rains – and we now believe the pike are running shallow and the walleyes are mostly spawned out. We will have more details on fishing patterns once our guests report about their trip following their season opening adventures.
New Guest Services:
This year we have relocated our guest welcome center from Waweig Lake near Armstrong to Thunder Bay. Our arriving guests will receive all their final trip planning and processing at our renovated headquarters, gift shop, and float plane hangar here in Thunder Bay. We are also offering complimentary motor coach shuttle service to our floatplane docks at both Armstrong and Nakina. Guests arriving in Thunder Bay will be greeted here by Jodi, our new Guest Services Coordinator, who also happens to be an accomplished chef. She teaches Culinary Arts at Confederacy College – see her walleye rub recipe below. So Jodi literally wears two hats – that tall white one and the Wilderness North ball cap.
Special Money Saving Offer: This is the time of year where we have a few openings in our schedule that we call “filler trips.” These trips are on very specific dates, to very specific locations, with very specific group size requirements. They are available at both our lodges and at a few outpost destinations as well. Joe Pichey can answer your questions about these money saving opportunities…you may e-mail Joe for more info.
Also, Happy Memorial Day wishes to our many US friends and guests!
