Return to Clear Lake
September 12, 2012
Recently we received a note from John Nelson after he returned home from his fly-in vacation at the Clear Lake outpost:
Thank you for hosting our group for another year of great fishing. I really enjoyed our trip back to Clear – it felt like going home. As always your service, people and equipment were top notch. This year we had Tom as our pilot. You have a solid and efficient man with him. It was good to see you again.
Sincerely, John Nelson
If you’re a regular visitor to our Facebook page, you know that Dave & Gerald are once again busy with pencils and rulers. When we decided to begin renovating the outpost cabins, Clear was the first cabin on our list. After looking at a lot of building plans and kicking around different options, we decided on a cabin with all the comforts of home that would go beyond anything a fly-in fisherman expects in an outpost cabin. Many fishermen, like John Nelson, are repeat guests to Clear. When asked where the plan for the cabin came from, Dave answers, “I sat down with a small ruler and a piece of paper and designed it myself.”
The two bedroom cabin on Clear Lake is located 185 miles north and is the only cabin on the lake. Situated on a point amongst the pines, the 4-mile long lake makes it very easy to fish and has some of the best trophy walleye and northern fishing in our area. Clear offers a short easy walk to two portage lakes where you will find the boat and motor on the other side for your use. The one lake has lake trout, walleye and the other offers walleye and northern fishing.
Once you have experienced the peaceful wilderness beauty it is easy to see why we have so many guests requesting a return to Clear.
