Ice-Out Update and more

Greetings from Spring in the North Woods,

Some highlights of the world up here right now:

  • We expect ice out to be late next week and the water is receding fast this year. The smelt runs to our south have started and we are quite excited that our spring fishing will begin very soon.
  • We explored a  4 mile road system last evening and saw 14 grouse, two males were doing battle in the road. We stopped and listened a number of times and continuously heard birds drumming. They seemed to winter well and we hope for a great nesting season.
  • The new cabin at Chandler is coming along well.  We are cutting logs today and dealing with water issues from the winter.
  • On the moose front. A friend of ours has been shed hunting for a few days and has found 14 dead moose. 9 bulls and 5 cows. Not a good thing. The winter and the Moose Ticks have not been kind to them.

Open Dates:

We have a few openings for Ice-Out fishing the weeks of  May 17-18, 23-26 and June 1-7th.
Pond fly fishing and some lake fishing the weeks of June 14-20, 28-1st and July 14-18th.

Looking at Fall believe it or not we have a couple openings for Grouse Season.  Book them now they won’t last!  Dates available during the weeks of October 4-10th, October 18-24th and October 25-31st.

Thank You for all your support we hope to see you in camp soon!

Opening of Fourth Musquacook…

We made it into the Lodge at Fourth Musquacook.  Still about a foot of snow in the driveway. Looks like ice out will be right on schedule!

The yard work and cleaning of the Lodge is well underway. We are getting anxious in anticipation of Spring getting here, fish and our guests arriving soon.
