June 5, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | June 5th, 2010|2010|

June 5th, 2010: It's been a productive week with lots of nice fish!  The bigger Pike are turning on and we've had a good mix of trophy Walleye, Lake Trout and Brook Trout as well.  The weather has been very nice for late May, early June fishing.  Just a bit of rain and not too much wind, we've had mostly sunny days which is great for the Pike.  We have a very full camp from now [...]

May 26th, 2010:  Things are well underway here at the lodge!  We have already welcomed our first guest for the lodge and at Joint Lake and we're already on our second group at Aswap Lake.  The first group of 6 guys who fished Aswap for 5 and a half days had a great time again.  They've been fishing Aswap since the first year we opened the camp and they always take the first week of the [...]

May 3rd, 2010: We're about to get started with another great season of fishing, fun and food!

Later this week I'm going to Flin Flon to get trained on the Cessna 206 so that I can fly the float plane this summer. We're going to have a pilot hired to do 99% of the flying [...]

March 12th, 2010:  Tom and I just got back from the North yesterday, mission accomplished!!  The new boat, new motors and a truck we're all taken into the lodge and I can happily say with minimal damage.  We had our share of breakdowns with the equipment including a seized starter or seized engine on the Bombadier, over heating on the Case 350 Cat, no fuel to the Case 450 Dozer, some new dents to the Dodge [...]

February 19th, 2010: With all the changes to the website it's taken a while for me to learn the new system and get some time to do another update so this will be a good long one! First, Tom and I have been through St. Louis, Indy, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and Omaha already and had great success at the shows this year! There's just Phoenix and another Minneapolis show left this season and then we'll be [...]

November 18th, 2009: I've updated the sportshow page with the new All Canada coupon and all the new dates for 2010. I also updated the rates page and will provide some new open dates once we have a few more groups sorted out. So far the 2010 season is looking pretty good, Aswap is currently sold out and Joint Lake only has 3 open weeks. At Bolton Lake June has filled up quickly and there are [...]

October 27th, 2009: As usual it's been a pretty busy fall getting everything put away, making the newsletters and taking care of the business we just can't do while we're up north. The newsletters will be in the mail later this week, please send us your address if you'd like to receive a copy. I took one last trip into Bolton Lake yesterday, I rented a Piper Warrior from the local flying school and flew in [...]

September 9th, 2009: Well the lodge and the outposts are all officially shut down for the season and only Ray remains at the lodge to look after the camp. This past weekend I did some final shut down work and got in a bunch of fishing with my pal Chris Okell. See below for some great season ending fish pictures! All things considered with the economy, the lousy weather and the late ice out we had [...]

Our last lodge guests departed yesterday along with quite a few staff, by tomorrow there will only be 4 of us left in camp! The outposts are full until September 6th and by the 10th the float plane will be headed back to Flin Flon until next spring. We'll [...]
