Jeanne MacLean has reached the milestone of owning Fletcher Lake Lodge for 35 years. So far on the 35th season there has been an outstanding amount of Trophy’s by our new and returning guests. As part of the Trophy Waters program all are caught and released, except for the 14 to 17 inch Walleye kept for shore lunch.
39 Trophy Small Mouth Bass
8 Trophy Walleye
4 Trophy Northern Pike
Our first group of 11 this year favored Small Mouth Bass fishing, getting a total of 23 Trophy Bass, not to mention the countless that were under 18 inches. Kim, the lady of the group, showed the boys up and caught a 36 inch Muskie in Fletcher Lake.
The new lodge has made immense progress this spring. The roof is on, windows and doors have been installed, and we have started the process of pressure washing the inside and outside. Once that is completed, it will be stained with an Australian Mahogany Flame.
There have been numerous encounters of a cow and calf moose, along with a bear, and lynx. And of course as always loons, geese, and Bald Eagles have been spotted all over. The water is high, and the fish are moving deeper as the temperature rises.
