Cobham River Lodge
2019 Preseason Fishing Report
Hello from Cobham River, our lodge crew has been busy this past week setting up and making sure everything is ready to go for 2019.
Cobham River Lodge has undergone a huge transformation in the last 7 days. Boats have been setup, beds have been made, glasses have been polished, and we’ve confirmed that the fish are here and waiting for our first guests of the 2019 Season!
Yesterday we sent our crew out for a quick couple of hours to test the waters and find out exactly where the fish are holding. Even though the weather was a little less than ideal, boats spread out and fished a lot of our favorite haunts (The Cut, 6/18, East Narrows, and one or two even ventured out to Elliot Lake).
There’s no better feeling than watching a reel scream on the first fish of the season and that’s exactly how things played out. There was action at most locations, with the largest pike (117CM, 46 inches) being boated at The Cut (less than 5 minutes from the dock). There were also a few people who dropped a jig looking for walleye, albeit briefly, and they were rewarded with some nice dinner filets.
Plenty of bait was also observed at the majority of locations, and for the short time we were on the water things are looking great here for the start of the season!
We’re all looking forward to seeing you all up here real soon and enjoying some of the trophy pike fishing that Cobham River Lodge is renowned for. Our crew is all ready to see you and can’t wait to welcome everyone to the Lodge, 2019 is going to be a season to remember!
We look forward once again to meeting some great people for the first time as well as re-uniting with old friends from previous seasons.
Until we meet, Take care and tight lines.
