Did I mention things have been a bit WILD here?
We just got boats in the water up at Makokibatan Lake this past Sunday, and guests arrive on Wednesday. The dock still needs work, thanks in no small part to heaving and shifting bunkers from the lingering ice. We’ll just grit our teeth, and eventually “git ‘er done.”
There’s signs that Ogoki Lake had exceptionally high water, since our boats, fuel, and propane tanks, all carefully stacked for the winter, were found “washed up” in the bush; way up in the bush requiring a chain saw gang to cut a trail to them! However, lake levels on Ogoki Lake are back to about normal now.
This is the first of our Weekly Fishing Reports and mini podcasts. Mark Prokopchuk, our Amrstrong Base Camp Manager has a great report on four Master Angler Pikes caught and released out at Zig Zag, Katelyn Johnson has the report from Miminiska Lodge on the Albany. (By the way, all new Lund Boats scheduled to be delivered last week went on a mistaken truck ride to BC and back but were dropped into Miminiska Lodge by helicopter yesterday.) Tyler Lancaster checks in from Whitewater Lake‘s Striker’s Point Lodge. Last but not least, Wilderness North Meteorologist Graham Saunders has a forecast and a story on 39 degree waters.
