Trip number 2, coming up
Just returned from two weeks of another great trip. Fish seemed to be scattered and size was good. Our biggest was 26.5 and caught many in the 18 to 22 inch class. We had a couple of Bear come into our camp and had to be extra careful to get rid of our fish scraps.
Everyone who I fished with was tons of fun and did real well too. Got to make some new friends meet up with old ones. The weather was pretty good but it did get hot for a few days and we only fished mornings and evenings.
We are arrive on 6/23 and leave on the morning of 6/29. I also see the water is pretty low (even lower than last year). There are a few people going up a day before us that we know very well and they are staying in a cabin behind the old lodge too. While the water will be low, we will still have a great time and catch a lot
I would love to start going twice a year, maybe June and September. The wife said she will go but I don't think she can handle fishing ALL day and its nice going with someone else to split the costs. We always get a cabin for around $500/ person/ week but many places also offer camping for very reasonable rates. Might have to start exploring that route, could camp in a tent for around $30 - $40 a night. Life is too short to only fish Canada once a year!
Big storm, have you gone up yet? Reports are water levels are again very low. Fish seem to be active and I have heard of being nice size. I leave in about 10 days. Going to be up there for 2 weeks, if you are there at the same time, stop in. We are right behind Grassy Narrows lodge in the log cabin.
How far upriver did you go? We will make a few trips up to Maynard Falls, Tide Narrows (past Ball Lake Lodge). I know the water is too low to get into Dumpy Lake but there are a few spots over that way too. A lot of our fishing starts at the southeast end of Indian Lake and from there we work our way upriver.
I'm heading up there Friday night, should be at Trevor & Bonnie's about noon on Saturday. I see the water level looks to be pretty low and the weather is forecast to be a little cool next week but oh well, it will still be a great trip
