This past month was cool, with frequent scattered showers, but proved successful for fishing. The walleye season started on May 20th with the Isle of Jordan and five cabins on Loch Island open and smiles all around as our guests landed themselves on our trophy walleye and pike boards.
And of course all of those fish taste amazing when fried up at shore lunch at Teepee Island!
More boats are being launched in preparation for the June rush. Pfeiffer tries to help out where he can, but also likes to sit in the sun on the Loch Island deck…
We’ve been working on camp infrastructure since all of the staff arrived in mid-May. The dockhands are tearing out several docks, building new cribs, and putting together sturdy new docks that will weather the frigid northern Ontario winter for more seasons to come. The minnow tank is running in the Loch Island fish shack.
The housekeepers painted Loch Island Lodge and cabin exteriors in between rain showers. The new docks and walkways will also be painted once complete. The nights are still too cool for flowers to be planted around the lodge, but when warmer weather arrives our outdoor projects will be finished.
We’ve made a few changes in the lodge as well. We brought up Camp Lochalsh’s ice table and are now serving dinnertime salads and the Modified American Plan continental breakfast in new spreads. We’re sure that guests will enjoy having a greater variety of salads and snacks to choose from. The pool table, Wi-Fi, and satellite TV are in place, as always, for your daily entertainment.
Brighter skies are ahead, and in no time it will be summer. We still have cabins available around the lake, so call or email today to reserve! We’ll see you all soon!
