October 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

October 27, 2014: The 2014 fishing and hunting season has come to an end and we're already getting busy for 2015! The newsletters will be out in about a week which should help keep the phones and emails busy until the holidays! I would love to find some time to get some Whitetail hunting in this fall but it might not work out. Good thing I ended up with a few chunks of meat from the [...]

September 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 8th, 2014: We've been hard at work building the new cabin at Aswap Lake! Our last guests left on August 30th so we have been able to concentrate on the new cabin and I think it will be one of the nicest outpost camps in Manitoba! The new cabin has a wrap around deck that is 8X24 on one side and 6X24 on the other! We have 2 doors, one on the front and one [...]

August 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 12th, 2014:  Our 26th fishing season is coming to an end fairly soon.  Just 2 groups left for Aswap Lake and then the hunting season will begin in late September.  For the next month we will be building the new cabin at Aswap Lake and getting a bit more work done around the lodge when the weather doesn't allow us to fly over to the outpost camp.  We chartered an Otter yesterday and moved almost [...]

July 28 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 28th, 2014:  We've had three more weeks of crazy weather and big fish!  It has not rained in over a week but the 2 weeks prior more than made up for the rest of the season.  We had lots of big rain showers which played havoc with the runway conditions but our water levels are up, the rapids are running fast and strong and there are no signs of any forest fires this year!  For [...]

July 7 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 7th, 2014:  It's been a crazy couple weeks with great fishing, bi-polar weather, huge fish and good times!!  The big Pike have been hitting consistently as well as the Walleye and Lake Trout.  Each visit to the Brook Trout river produced multiple trophies and a season high one day total of 26 Brook Trout!  Our motor was stolen for the 4th time off the River despite being locked on the boat so we may not [...]

June 20 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 20th, 2014:  The fish have really been biting lately!  We've had some great fishing weather and with the late ice out we're still catching big Pike is shallow bays!  The Lake Trout are still pretty shallow too, yesterday a 37 inch Lake Trout was caught in about 6 feet of water while jigging for Walleye on a sand bar!!  A couple of the trophy Pike caught yesterday were caught while jigging for Walleye as well [...]

June 11 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 11th, 2014:  The ice lasted until about May 29th and then there was just a small sheet left over in the Southwest corner of the main lake.  Since then we've had a mix of beautiful hot weather to a cold snowy day and everything in between.  The fishing has been outstanding!  For the first week of the season we were catching trophy Pike constantly and now we're getting a nice mix of trophy Pike, Walleye [...]

May 27 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 27th, 2014:  The ice is almost all gone!  We made it to the West River last night and again today but we had to break through a bit of ice to get there.  The guys had some trouble getting back to the camp today with the ice getting shifted around by winds but other than a bit of prop damage, it all worked out.  We were finally able to start getting the docks into the [...]

May 20 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 20th, 2014:  We still have ice on our main lake here at Bolton Lake but we have 3 boats launched in the back bay and we can access Mink Creek, the Gator Bowl, Hole #1, and the south-south bays.  It's a bit cooler today with wind from the north and clouds but the weather has been pretty good lately.  The sun will be out for the next few days and with the black ice on [...]

May 10 2014 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 10th, 2014:  I was back and forth to the lodge a couple of times this week and things are looking not too bad.  There's some open water along the shores, rivers and creeks but there's still snow and slush on top of the ice.  The good thing about the slush and snow is that when it all melts it will really help deteriorate the ice below.  The ice is very unsafe right now with the [...]
