October 24, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

October 24th, 2008: The lodge has been officially shut down for about 2 weeks now and we're all back in Winnipeg starting to plan for next season. I've been working on my commercial pilot's license more and hope to have the flight test done before the new year, then I'll have the rest of winter to study for the written exam. I used the plane I've been training on to fly up to Bolton and take [...]

August 18, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 28th, 2008: We finished off the lodge season in style!! A 40 inch Lake Trout and a 47 inch Northern Pike were caught during our last week!!! The outposts will still be running for a couple more weeks and then the hunters will come in towards the end of September. The weather has been nice this week but last week it was very windy and there were a couple nasty storms that swamped boats and [...]

August 5, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 5th, 2008: I was worried that things would slow down a bit because we has such a productive May, June and July but the trophies and the numbers are still coming in strong. We were very proud to help a group beat their 20 year records (who says fishing isn't as good as it was 20 years ago??), the Hutchison group who counted every fish they caught smashed their previous total by almost 500 fish!! [...]

July 15, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 25, 2008: We've had a great run of weather and fishing again lately!! The big Pike are the main story this season and the Brook Trout would be next headline! We don't go for Brook Trout without landing a few trophies and the numbers have been in the double digits every trip. The guests who do the fly out trip for Brook Trout can't believe that we don't promote it harder but we like to [...]

July 14, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 14, 2008: The weather has been up and down quite a bit lately, today we have thunder storms with lots of lightning and some good down pours already. We've been getting the same results with our fishing as well but overall we're have our best year for trophies! The Brook Trout have almost been a guaranteed trophy any time guys have done the fly out, we're still catching trophy Pike just about every day and [...]

July 1, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 1, 2008: Sorry for the delay, just been busy! It's been a productive 11 days since the last update, over 60 trophies caught and released averaging almost 6 per day!! I think we're going to break our all time high for number of trophies caught if we keep up this pace! The Lake Trout have been better than we've seen them in 8 years, the Brook Trout have been amazing this year, we're catching about [...]

June 10, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 20th, 2008: The weather has been too good to stay inside and post bulletins on the computer! Actually we've had our share of rain over the past 10 days, I think we had 4 days straight with rain, wind and generally bad weather but now it's warm, sunny and there's almost no wind today. The fishing has been very good lately, especially the Lake Trout! In the past 4 days we've landed 11 trophy Lake [...]

June 8, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 8th, 2008: Less than a week between updates, this is a record! I'm stuck in the office desperately waiting for the service people to call me back about fixing my walk-in freezer that died this morning, so I thought I'd keep myself busy by doing an update. We have a lot of great new pictures to show and this will give me another opportunity to thank the group of guests who just left. Especially Bob [...]

June 3, 2008 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 3rd, 2008: It's been a busy spring getting things opened up and setting up for the season. The weather has been absolutely amazing so far this spring, only one real rain shower so far, no snow, blizzards or below freezing temperatures since mid May!!! The group who survived our May blizzard of 2007 is here again this spring and can't believe the difference and they don't know what to do with all the clothes they [...]
