Happy New Years!
Just a quick update on the ice fishing. Ice condition on Tunkwa are good, lots of cold nights have been building the ice. A bit of a warm spell, cause a bit of a sloppy top, but did not effect the ice thickness. The slush/wet spots on the surface have all tightened up now. Not much snow in the area so getting around the lake has been easy. Our skating rink is in pretty good shape as well.
Mixed fishing reports coming from our guests, some doing really well, with most people catching some trout. Please stop in the office to get the latest intel. We have heard some good reports from guests fishing Leighton Lake.
All the best in 2019!

Fishing remained consistent and good since the last report. The weather has turned cool and wet, with some wet snow in the mix on Sunday. The trout are still shallow, and really feeding up with the cool nights, they know … Continue reading
