The border closure has been extended to July 21, 2020. Again, I will not be surprised if the closure is extended again. I am still concerned that there are growing odds that we will lose the entire summer season.
Missy and the kids were allowed to cross the border and are currently in quarantine for 14 days. The Gov. of Canada, the Province of Ontario, and the Northwest Health unit have all called or emailed several times to confirm that they are following through with the quarantine requirements. The OPP came out for a site visit. The Canadians are taking the pandemic very seriously.
The new fixed dock is complete and looks sharp. We will tie it into a new boat house some year after we open up for business again. The landscaping of the new cabin is coming along, but some of our new trees are going to have to be replaced. And most importantly, we are still on the water every day training our new guides for their future guests.
Ice out was May 15 and the lake opened up lower than average and continues to be low. Overall spring was very warm and dry. We blazed through our typical spring bites and are already catching numbers of fish on the main lake. It is much more difficult to follow bites and patterns with just a few guide training boats on the water.
We are scheduled to begin hosting a few Canadian fishing groups the first week of July. Until then, we will remain hopeful and ready to open up for all of our US anglers.
