This week at Miminiska Lodge the temperatures were warm and skies were very clear, driving Walleye deep and taking the Pike with them. Despite cool mornings, temperatures reached highs in the 70’s by mid-afternoon. Typically, the sunshine tends to make for less-than-ideal fishing conditions – but last week the weather didn’t seem to slow down the smaller fish at all!
Wottom Bay was a popular location for guests, as well as the tail waters of the Keezhik River. Fish were being caught in roughly 6ft of water, and especially in areas with lots of weeds. We had no Master Anglers this week – but fish were averaging around 18″ for Walleye, and a variety of sizes for Northern Pike, from “hammer handles” to mid 30’s.
This will be my final fishing report this summer as I am making my way back home and back to school in Southern Ontario. Jocelyn Bridgeo will be providing you with the information for next few weeks, until the lodge closes. We have a group on our newest trout stream right now, so I know Jocelyn will have the information about those fly-out trips in her report next week, It’s been a great season – and I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces back at Miminiska Lodge next summer!
