Good morning RSL family here is some information for you when you prepare to cross the border this year. I got this from our tourism group NOTO.

Of course this comes with a list of COVID safety measures that guests will need to adhere to. Fully vaccinated travelers must meet the following requirements:

  • be fully vaccinated with a Health Canada approved vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and/or Johnson & Johnson (one-dose));

  • provide COVID-19- related information electronically through ArriveCan (App or web portal) including proof of vaccination prior to departing for Canada;

  • meet the pre-entry testing requirements; negative test up to 72 hours prior to entry into Canada

  • be asymptomatic upon arrival; and

  • have a paper or digital copy of their vaccination documentation in English or French (or certified translation, along with the original) ready to show a government official on request; and

  • participate in random self-testing

The ArriveCan app/website is easy to figure out.

I hope this list is easy to understand. If not don't hesitate to contact us. If I don't make it to the phone in time since we're outside constantly please leave a msg with your name and number. We're getting closer!

Good afternoon Rocky Shore Lodge friends and family! With Week 18 in the rear-view mirror its funny how nature works her magic. After a windy cold week last week we had some of the best weather we’ve had all year (Sorry Beth) this week. Gorgeous weather that we will probably have to pay for soon. LOL! The leaves are turning and the days are getting short up here that’s for sure. Boats are back in by around 730p.m. now as the sun is fading quickly. It’s such a beautiful time up here. Fishing has been good this week with the walleyes still hanging in 30 to 40 feet of water. One day some boats slammed them by Twin Islands in 15 to 20 feet, and Mike Weiser and Jay were fishing in deep water on a slow troll and as Mike turned the boat around he found a large school in 20 foot of water and they stopped the boat there and had a walleye catching party he said for the next 1.5 hours. You just never know sometimes where that active pod is going to hang out. I guess that’s why we call it fishing and not catching. I was informed the buoys by Twin Islands are now missing so I’m wondering if Margaret has made her way out in the lake or we have some people needing marker buoys. Anyway we’ll get that taken care of with a bleach bottle for now until next spring arrives.

Weird that we would have 3 marker buoys in the same area disappear in a week of each other.

Walleyes were seen in 35 to 40-foot on the steep drop offs. The wall off Hatfield, Deeper water off Hopeless point, and Little Manotek wall were all producing. Barry was catching them off the Weasel hole which is betweek Little Hatfield and Tween Islands I think. He gave me the coordinates but I haven’t bothered to plug it in to the gps yet, but when I do we’ll let the guests know this week where he had success.

We have 2 musky hunters coming up this week so I'll keep our Musky anglers in mind for next weeks blog.

Monster Fish Monday results: Congratulations to 3-time winner Dean Reiter. He scored a 26-inch Walleye, and Joe Campbell won his first hat with a 32-inch Northern Pike. Barry Neiland had to fight off a seagull to pull in his 2.5-inch perch out of the lake for the Micro fish prize!

Navy history/trivia: What was the name of the first U.S. aircraft carrier?

Answer: USS Langley: Converted from a Cyclops-class fleet collier. Since it was not as fast as the ships in the fleet the Langley could not conduct operations at sea. But it was invaluable for the

information gained and experience in handling aircraft at sea.
