Sawyer Lake Rd.
Summer Camp is back. Last years event was a huge success. Multiple Master Angler fish were caught, new lakes were explored, and some experienced their first ever sporting clays.
We got the bugs out last year, and this year we are dialed in. We moved up the date to be able to chase monster river pan fish. We have a new lake to explore and the kayak anglers may get access to a secret lake.
Our lodging is an old 4H camp and the names of prior 4h campers are still written on the wall. Bunk type cots and two wings filled with beds are our lodging. The large dining haul hosted our group meals, cribbage tournament and held our coolers full of drinks. The facility can hold a lot, but we decided last year to keep the numbers manageable. That means space is limited.
Craft day will return, but the felt painting that Cindy did last year will be hard to beat. Sporting Clays will return and this year we are adding , intro to cross bow! One day of golf at the impeccable George Young Golf Course will also be an option. The cribbage tournament will the held again and I want a rematch. That walleye cribbage board the winner received will also be back.
Last year, many members brought boats, and it worked out so all the campers could jump in one of the boat that went off exploring. If we don’t have people with boats, we are pretty grounded so tickets will be sold to boaters and non boaters.
The lake we are on is Sawyer lake and I actually grew up there. Nice blue gills and crappies are present along with bass and pike. The camp has canoes that are available to use.
Nearby is the Michigamme River and it is the perfect kayaking river. We have learned the river well and there are always lots of fish to be caught including giant small mouth bass and nice eater walleye.
Take a look at this slide show to see some fun from last year.
