Here we are on the last day of February and it has been snowing all day.  At least 6 inches on the ground as I post this update and it is just now picking up speed.  Mike just started plowing and Chad is on the working end of the shovel.  Me, I'm in the kitchen starting another apple crisp and not straying to far from the woodstove.

Current temperature is 30 degrees and the weather forecast predicted 6 to 10 inches which seems to be spot on so far.  Hopefully no rain this far north.

The groomer completed his rounds last night so trail conditions are great.  Sounds like perfect conditions for spring riding.

Here we are near the end of another week and month for that matter.  It has been very busy here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps this past week with school vacations bringing many families outdoors to enjoy the wonders of winter.  Even the frigid 15 degrees below zero recorded yesterday morning, didn't keep them away as the sun quickly brought the temps into the twenties.  Perfect conditions for a ride.

Big Buck Dining Room has been filled to capacity nearly every day this week and all our cabins are occupied for this weekend.  Perhaps this is a sign that the economy is starting to take the upward turn we have all been waiting for.

Speaking of waiting, the skies this morning are overcast, looking heavy and ready to release another snow storm.  The forecast is predicting 6 to 10 inches of snow starting at about mid-morning and continuing throughout the day.  We'll have to wait and see what actually falls and accumulates as sometimes the prediction does not materialize.  But with a current temperature of 27 degrees, we should a significant amount.

If you thought Spring had sprung you thought wrong.  After two days of temps in the 40's we awoke this morning to 21 degrees and blowing snow.  These colder temps are forecast for the entire week, so pack up that sled and head north.

All reports from the trails are good, great, excellent conditions.  The warm-up actually helped to settle the snow and riding is just wonderful.

Eastern Fishing & Outdoor Expo 2011

Yes, another inch or so of fresh snow overnight accompanied by below zero temperatures.  The groomer from Oquossoc completed his trip so trails are groomed, setup and topped with a little fresh powder just to keep the sleds cool.  The sun is shining and temperatures have climbed to 12 degrees above zero already, so the day is shaping up to be picture perfect for a trail ride or back country adventure.

The Eastern Fishing & Outdoor Expo in Worcester, MA opens today and believe it or not Mike has travelled to the big city to man the booth along with Rick Estes and Jack Baltz.  Mike brought a little bit of Bosebuck with him for the booth display so if you get a chance to experience the show, please stop by and say hello to the guys.  They will be happy to answer any questions you may have and you can even book a hunting or fishing trip right there on the spot.

It's Super Snow Sunday here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  Rather than kicking back and watching the big game, the guys will be plowing, shoveling, snowblowing and just moving snow out of the way.  We received a good 8 inches of heavy snow overnight with light snow showers still falling this morning.  Our current temperature is 24 degrees with wind from the north/northeast.

Finally, some groomable snow and just as important our grand-daughter has been waiting for "snowman" snow so she can build a big snowman.  Well, I think today will be the day for that.

East by Northeast to air on MPBN

For all you fly fishermen who are just itching for spring and currently suffering through these cold temps and snowy conditions, this film will take you away to some great locations including Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  We hope you enjoy the show. 


Gray Ghost Productions "East by North East" scheduled for PBS broadcast in February.

Manchester, New Hampshire – January 24, 2011 – Gray Ghost Productions, a Manchester, New Hampshire outdoor adventure film company unites once again with Maine Public Broadcasting Network with an edited version of the 2009 film "East by North East," premiering Saturday February 5, 2011 at 11am and re-air on February 10, 2011 at 10pm.

After celebrating the release of their third fly-fishing film in three years, Carter Davidson, creative director and president of Gray Ghost report’s "It is both an honor and a pleasure to have our 2009 release of ExNE be a part of the MPBN line-up. If you are looking to escape the normalcy of everyday life and in need of a cabin fever reliever, this film is a solution. East by North East presents something more than the typical fly-fishing film. I think what it does is extend an invitation to anyone with even a small interest in the outdoors to take a closer look at the addiction that is fly fishing on the East Coast."

East by North East was filmed in locations from the British Virgin Island’s to New Brunswick and throughout New England, with everything from fresh to saltwater, trout to bonefish. ExNE examines the motives of a wide range of anglers who fish in areas ranging from urban such as downtown Lewiston Maine to the remote waters of Maine’s Magalloway River, and seeks to explain the unknown element that drives the fly fisherman to distraction between outings.

"There is an unexplained element to fly fishing – I don’t know if you’d call it obsession, or addiction, but whatever it is, there is an interesting cast of characters for whom fishing is more than a hobby. It becomes a way of life. That’s what we wanted to focus on. Its even sweeter to share these experiences with the larger audience that Maine Public Broadcasting Network has to offer," Davidson adds.

As with most of Gray Ghost Productions offerings, East By North East makes a point to examine the current state of conservation with a closer look at the Androscoggin River Watershed, ponders where fishing is going and where it’s been, and introduces the viewer to some of the sport’s biggest stars.

Got Snow?

We sure do, 17 inches have fallen since Tuesday.  What a nice way to start the new month. Tuesday's storm only gave us an inch, which was a little disappointing, but yesterday and all through the night the white stuff just kept piling up.  If that isn't enough, the groomer from Oquossoc came in about 10:00 o'clock last night so the trails must be in awesome condition.  If you're done shoveling where you are, load up the sled and head north.
