Thank You

to all those who have served and those currently serving to protect the freedoms we hold dear.

Although we have escaped the majority of the rain in the past few days, and even had sunshine with blue skies for a portion of the day yesterday, a light drizzle is falling this morning accompanied by a heavy overcast.  The fishermen say these are perfect conditions for fishing except for the high water.Water temps have fluctuated in the forties and the rivers are certainly rushing.

Paramachenee Road is in typical spring condition with lots of pot holes and very soft shoulders.  Repairs have begun, so if you are driving in, be sure to keep a watchful eye for truck/equipment traffic and operation in the roadway.  You should allow at least 45 minutes for travel into camp.

Let the fishing begin

Yes, the fishermen arrived on Monday morning eager to launch their boats and wet a line.  Air temps have been in the low 50's, high 40's but windy which makes it a little less pleasant on the water but they are all happy to be here.

Just a reminder that Bosebuck Mountain Camps is located 13 miles in from the paved road (Route 16) and we are operating under spring road conditions.  For those of you travelling into camp for the first time, that means lots of pot holes, sunken culverts and washouts.  Although a 4-wheel drive vehiclee may not be necessary, it certainly is suggested especially if you plan on travelling further u into Parmachenee.

Of course we need to give a big THANK YOU to all our friends, family and staff who helped us work our way through the spring project list; Jerry, John, Bill, Nancy, Jake, Mike O., Rick, Chip, Michael, David, Shannon, Chad and Dana.  If I forgot anyone, please know we appreciate all  your help.  We certainly couldn't do this all alone.

Signs of Spring

I have compiled a short list of what I believe to be sure signs that spring has finally arrived at Bosebuck Mountain Camps:
  1. You can now step over the remaining snow banks
  2. There is not enough snow to snowmobile safely
  3. The ice has finally given way and we have open water at the north end of the lake
  4. The loons have returned and are pleasantly calling to each other
  5. The pair of geese that like to call Bosebuck home have returned to make a mess of what little grass we have that isn't under water
  6. The front lawn and parking lot are completely under water
  7. The average temperature is above freezing even though there is still a chance of snow
  8. We have mud!

Our fishermen will begin arriving on Monday, May 9th and the dining room should be open to the public as well but call ahead just to be sure.

Parmachenee Road is in typical spring condition with some sunken culverts and washouts, but all in all not too bad.  Just take your time and plan on 45 minutes to an hour to travel into Bosebuck.  The road above camp had three feet of water flowing over it last week so it was not passable.  We do not have current conditions of the road above us or on the east side of the lake.
