Barometric Pressure

18 05 2019

Opening Day! We are ready to kick off our 2019 season! Northern Pike and Lake trout fishing has been very good this past week. Lake trout waters were running temperatures in the high 40’s and many fish were being caught in shallow water. Northern Pike action was hot. Smaller bush lake temperatures are in the low 50’s. Looking forward to see how walleye action sets up on the first day of season. NW Ontario is experiencing some beautiful weather on this May long weekend, lots of sunshine with a nice walleye chop.

Pickerel Creek Camp is excited to announce along with Lethbridge College in Alberta a study on the potential effects of barometric pressure on fishing success/harvest. Personally, I have always wondered what may cause fish to actively feed or not. In conjunction with the Department of Environmental Science at Lethbridge College we will be doing a study this summer. Zain Ismail is a senior student and will be doing his final project on this subject. We will be asking for your help in collecting data and look forward to sharing our results with you. I know some of you may not be customers of ours but if you would like to participate in the study a simple email to get a questionnaire would suffice.

We will be seeing many of you soon, safe travels and good fishing.
