It is a slow start to spring this year. At this time last year the lake was open and boats were in the water. This year the lake is still frozen over, just starting to open up at the creeks and rivers, but still a few weeks away until ice off. Some of the birds have returned and are wonderful to listen to. Our opening date will depend on ice off, hopefully mid May.
The fishing limit for Rainbow Trout on Nimpo Lake has been increased to 8 per day, per person, take home 16 per person (two days worth). Happy Fishing in 2017, now you can stay out longer and take home a few more.
We are looking forward to returning to the lake to get started on our spring projects. This May we plan to update the Hilltop cabin with new flooring; a new shower, new kitchen cabinets, counters, cooktop, and fridge. This will give the cabin a more modern, fresher look. Our exterior project is landscaping. We will be terracing the front yard hill that goes down towards the dock, adding flower beds and a fire-pit patio with a pergola near the lakeshore. We hope to have these projects completed by early June, and then we will move on to some smaller maintenance items around the resort. We have been accepting reservations through the winter and things are filling up so we expect another busy summer season.
We have had a great season and are starting to wind down, closing one cabin at a time, putting boats away, and winterizing. We have the firewood all stacked for the winter. Thank you to all of our guests for another wonderful summer. Our final day will be October 5th, and after that we will still be tidying up, and getting everything put to bed. Look for future posts about our opening date next spring, and next year's cabin upgrade projects.
