It’s sadly finally upon us – Cobham River’s last guests of the 2022 season!
After a little not-so-user-friendly weather and a barometric pressure drop that slowed the fishing down a little, things have calmed, and fishing is on the upswing again!
As always, northern pike fishing has been super solid, with guests releasing northern pike (between 110cm and 120cm). Having such prolific food sources that consist of huge schools of baitfish means that our northern pike are well fed. Some MONSTER pike have been encountered too of late. Fantastic to see these breathtaking giants thriving here in our waters with the help of great resource management ensuring that all these big fish are mandatorily released.
Guests are also taking home some nice walleye in the 2-3lb range, while the bigger females over 4lbs are being released to keep propagating the species. Just yesterday released a walleye estimated at somewhere around 9lbs. Great release and thank you for doing your part to look after these amazing fish! Such releases help sustain our thriving local walleye population.
We’re expecting the good weather to continue until we say farewell to our final guests at the end of this trip, and by all indications the fishing will hold strong also. As I write, boats are hitting the dock for lunch and unloading their morning’s catch – looks great from here once again!
To those of you who have joined us this year, we hope that you have as many amazing memories as we do, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2023! If you didn’t make it up this year, what are you waiting for? 2023 is booking up quickly, so make your plans today and come and enjoy all the spectacular experiences that Cobham River Lodge has to offer.
