Let the Pike Games Begin

blog_may_30_2010_1[1] 30 hours after Victor I find myself in Missinipe, Saskatchewan. I’m with good friend Chris Hart and his friend Steve Bjorklund and his friend Bill Wilshire, these guys are all from Bozeman, Montana. All I can say is it was a long drive. I left Victor at noon yesterday. Once I got to Chris’s house we immediately left and picked up the other guys and drove to Malta, Montana. We crossed into Canada early this morning and drove for ten hours to where we are now.

I’m living up to my nickname, “Monsoon Currier”, the weather is for the ducks. The good news is that it is supposed to improve all week. If you look at a map of Saskatchewan, we are about fifty miles north of the small town of La Ronge, Saskatchewan (look northeast). We are going to stay at this place called Thompsons Lodge on Otter Lake for two nights and tomorrow toss flies for pike and walleye. On Tue., we will drive further north to the small town of Southend, Saskatchewan on Reindeer Lake and fly into an outpost lake called Pagota Lake.

I don’t know how often I’ll be reporting while on this trip but I’ll do my best. If I fall behind I’ll catch up when I get home. Keep and eye for some exciting reports and photos and tips on catching pike and walleye on the fly.
