Back in July, dear friends of ours were out visiting from Cold Lake. They stayed for a week and it was a lovely time. Much nicer than the time they had in Yellowknife with us two years prior…mostly because there is just SO much to do here and the weather and surroundings are unbelievably gorgeous.
Plus, there are no bugs! Well, there are a few, but not enough to complain about when you’re from northern Alberta and are used to bathing in DEET!
BH and buddy embarked on two dedicated fishing trips…once for saltwater varieties and once for freshwater. Both trips were successful, though at this particular spot the fish were not biting. It proved to be particularly frustrating as they could see monster fish from the bridge above, but no matter what they tried, the fish were having none of it.
