Paquette's Camp update  May 21st, 2012

Paquette's Camp opend on Friday in conjunction with the opening of Walleye season.
The weather here has been everywhere, 3 days ago it was snowing and it was 90 degrees on Saturday for the Walleye opener, first time I have been out in shirtsleeves for it. I am usually in a snowmobile suit!  The fish did bite in the hot bright weather but were a bit slow, the weather has changed from 90 to 50 degrees overnight with rain this should improve things.

Along with the hot dry weather we have had there are quite a few forest fires going in Ontario right now. It has been so dry that there are fire bans on right now, so there is no campfires etc. until conditions improve, which could be good for Chad as he is working with a fire crew right now and is fighting a fire on Lake of the Woods. The rain we had last night may help but the lightning may have started more fires, sometimes you just can't win.

For all of you who remember Black Flies, they are out in force right now we were even driven off the lake by them the other night.  they do get the animals out and about though, we have been seeing many Moose and Bear in the last couple of weeks. It is a great time for wildlife veiwing, there was even a bear in the yard last week.

I plan on having fresh fish on a regular basis now , hope some of you can come and join me!
