June 18, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 18th, 2009: It's been a funny season for weather so far this year, we've seen snow more often than I've ever seen in late May and June and now we've had three 80 degree days in a row! It's a bit cooler today, but we're okay with that. These drastic changes in weather has made it tough to pattern the fish but we're still getting trophies every day. One of the best days this year [...]

November 18, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 18th, 2009: I've updated the sportshow page with the new All Canada coupon and all the new dates for 2010.

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 27, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

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 9, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

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 [...]

August 15, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 15th, 2009: A few kidney stones to end off the season for me has put a damper on closing the camp and doing my web updates! 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 [...]

July 24, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 24th, 2009: Again with the rain and wind! It's been a tough season for weather, every time we think it's settled in, another storm system comes through. The fishing has been pretty good with the weather we've been getting, the mornings and evenings have been the best. No matter what the fishing has been like, the shore lunches and meals at the lodge have been outstanding according to all of our guests this season!! Some [...]

July 11, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 11th, 2009: It's been windy for the past few days but we've got a great forecast for the next few days. Most guests didn't bother fishing yesterday because of the wind and rain but the guests at Joint Lake had no trouble getting out on the river system and had some great success! Today it's still windy but we've got clear skies so most of the guests have decided to get out there. Here are [...]

July 3, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 3rd, 2009: It's been a bit windy for a few days here but today the sun is out and the lake is like glass! The wind has made the fishing a bit tougher but we're still managing a few trophies every day. Over the past week we've had a few fly fishermen here testing the waters strictly with fly rods, they were pleasantly surprised by the number and size of the fish they caught on [...]
