We hope everyone is having a good start to 2017.  We wanted to let you know that we have been having problems with our phone.  For the time being if you can’t get through or get a busy signal please shoot us an email.  It seems the problem is only from some parts of the US.

Winter has pretty much settled in, cold and snow is surly the theme.  Trout season opened on January 1st and the first week of season was action packed for most.  35 to 50 feet of water with the old standard white tube jig seemed to be the ticket.  Mixed reports for walleye and crappie thus far this year.  Fisherman north of us struggled a bit on some normally excellent winter hot spots and some friends have been putting fish on the ice in the Dryden area.  Ice conditions vary along with slush conditions.  High water levels this past fall again will make some of those creek passages a bit iffy.  I have not heard of any excellent crappie reports but the season is definitely early.

Our Spring bookings are solid but we do have a cabin avaiable the week of June 24th.  We will keep you informed of any cancelations .  If you are looking for something to do in 2017 Dave will be guiding a spring bear hunt, and will also be guiding mid-summer and fall musky trips.  We are also expanding our wolf hunt by a couple of hunters so if anyone is interested let us know.  We have a couple of spots avaiable in March of 2018.  For those of you who like to bird hunt you should really think about a fall grouse/fishing trip.  Season starts the 15th of September.  It is a great time of year to be in NW Ontario.



A buddy of ours was trying to make us a bit jealous with an openning day lake trout.



Spring Bear Hunt Reinstated In Ontario

23 02 2016

Our spring bear hunt in Ontario has been reinstated for May 1st to June 15th 2016 thru 2020.  This will be a great opportunity for some outfitters and hunters alike.  Besides turkey hunting, black bear was one of the only animals to hunt in the spring.  All of our fall hunting seasons in North America are packed with opportunities to hunt birds, small game, and big game of all sorts.  Being able to pursue a  big game animal in the spring is a great opportunity.  Pickerel Creek Camp in the 1990’s was full of bear hunters every spring but now we are full of fisherman, so we will participate in the spring bear hunt but it will be a remote hunt in our north bear area which encompasses the Long Legged Lake area.  Not only can you experience excellent spring  bear hunting but you can also partake in world class spring fishing on Long Legged Lake and very good surrounding bush lakes.  Give us a call to find out more and if you know of some one that might be interested let them know.  Betty and I have always appreciated the referrals and support from all of you.
