We had three goals for this past week. Goal number one was to get out to our favorite lake and film one of our fishing sessions. The weather did not look too promising on the day we chose to do it but we went anyways and were going to make the best of it.
Onaman Lake is a very big but remote lake in the area. In fact there are only two ways to get there; fly in or walk a mile and a ¼ to several boats Pasha Lake Cabins has on the lake. The walk in was not too bad, we wore our bug suits to keep the mosquitoes off of us. Since we are carrying in all our fishing gear you usually don’t have a free hand to do any swatting.
We had a great day of fishing and was able to film much of the trip. One of us had a better day then the other so you will have to watch the movie to see which one was the winner of the day.......
Our second goal for the week was to catch a few northern pike on our flyrods. During our Alaska trip last year we got to experience what it was like catching big fish on a flyrod. Since there are no salmon in this area we thought northerns would be the next best thing. We partially accomplished this goal, we got out fishing as planned but did not catch any fish on the flyrods. The wind just did not cooperate making it nearly impossible to throw a fly.
And our last goal was to finish cutting my way into the bear stands on the overgrown logging road that I started a couple weeks ago. Although the road carries on for quite a while longer I was able to cut my way into three of the better bear stands on this road and put some cameras up to see what kind of bears are in the area. Stay tuned for some pictures if we get them!
We are actually taking a mini-vacation and are currently in Wisconsin. Saturday we are headed to South Dakota for a week to do some work on our property. We decided to leave the rig in Canada, drive the truck down and rent one of the cabins at Country Charm just down the road from our property. Hopefully the weather cooperates and we get a lot of work done!
