We spent the first half of yesterday getting a couple more jobs done for Bill and Val. Pat put in his second set of stairs while Bill, Dick, and I assembled two new septic tanks and moved them into position behind cabins.
After a quick lunch the three amigos took a boat back to the trout lake portage and hiked into where the smaller boats are (we left the motor there the previous trip in). We boated to the far end of trout lake, docked the boat, humped our gear ( including the motor) over another portage to another lake where an even smaller boat, used by the Cree Natives, was stored.
We fished this lake and another lake,attached by a small waterway, for an hour or so before returning to Trout lake.
Back on Trout lake, we fished hard to complete our bag limit of northern pike but could only catch walleye until the last few minutes before we had to portage back to the main lake.
Just as we arrived back in camp a thunderstorm was approaching from the west. It turned into quite a storm; knocking out phones, satellite, and Internet until almost 11pm.
This morning is cold and overcast but it looks like we may be able to catch our plane out of here. I’m also including a photo of Jerry and Kennedy who are two of the fishing guides NSLL hires from the Cree village across the lake.
