A perfect weekend of weather wrapped up this past week!  If you want to beat the heat wave coming, we still have some space available in July and August.  Fishing has been excellent!  According to NOAA, our local weather forecast for the week looks good with high temp peeking on Wednesday at 88 degrees, with lows overnight in the 50’s and 60’s.  Most of the days this coming week show highs about 80 degrees.  This week is booked but right now we have some availability for the midweek rate specials for next week!

Our guides have been mostly fishing on the north side of the lake past Garden Island, there were a couple great days in the big bay further south last week but it has turned to spotty action.  We are hoping to see more consistent number this week on the south end in deeper water.  We have been doing a mix of drifting with crawlers or pulling plugs.  Morning drifts have been very successful.

There are still detours around Baudette, traffic is diverted south of town.  The impact is minimal unless you really need to be on main street in town.
