The sun sets on an ice-free Muskallonge Lake, and a long day of spring cleaning. Seems that a few weeks have slipped by since this blog report has been updated. That is certainly a sign of how busy we've been. All the cabins have been scrubbed, store floor is sporting a new wax job, the dock is in and the boats are prepared for the weekend Pike/Walleye opener.
Trout season opener was very good for the fisherman after steelhead. The big fish have been, and still are, in the river for over a month now. Whitefish have also been hitting over on the pier. Brook trout fishing in the small inland lakes has been better than the fishing in the river. With the season on all lakes opening up this weekend we will start getting better fishing reports on pan fish, pike and walleye.
We did hear our first report of morels being found. Typically for the UP a small number was found. But we are in dire need of some rain. It's been a few weeks since we got any solid amount of rain and the woods look it. The leafs seem ready to bud if they could get some moisture on them. Roads and two tracks are throwing dust already. We are starting the year with Muskallonge Lake in good shape in regards to water levels. Hopefully, we can hang on to most of it and not evaporate away as it has so often in past years.
Our cabins are full for the Memorial Day weekend. However, we do have openings in our lakeside cabins for June 2-10. We will rent these during whatever days fits your schedule. Starting mid-June we will begin renting only weekly (Saturday to Saturday). But we do have some good dates open throughout the summer. Two bedroom cabins are available June 18 to July 2 and we have a one bedroom cabin still open much of the month of June.
Drop us a note or give us a call if we can help you plan your summer vacation.
Enjoy the spring!!!
