June vs August

Recommended Posts

We have done a fly in fishing trip in Ontario the last three years. We have always gone the second week of June. Our group is talking about moving the trip to the last week of July or first week of August. What are some of the Pro's and Con's of switching months?

I'm primarily a pike fisherman and I prefer August. My reasons are the mosquitoes and insects usually are not a as much of a problem and there generally seems to be fewer people fishing at that time of year, which we like, and the weather tends to be pretty stable- not as many rainy cold days to contend with. For Pike, if the lake you fish has decent cabbage weedbeds you will find some decent pike. The weedbeds usually will have some walleyes too. I think the fish may be a little more difficult to locate in August as opposed to June, but as for our group the advantages of August out weigh those in June. I don't think I have ever had a trip in August that I thought was bad, and that's @ 15 years and several different lakes. Just my opinion! Rick Hill

For sure the best part of going to Canada in late July, early August is that the weather is a LOT more stable. Warmer days and some warmer nights with some incredible thunder storms. Without A/C some times those cabins get real stuffy. You'll find that you will have to fish a little deeper to find the bigger fish. The biggest problem going later in the year is that you have to wait that much longer for the trip to start.....

I have been doing fly ins for over 15 years and have gone every month of the season and they have been good in there own way so my thought is if you have always gone in June try August!

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
