COVID 19 Update

In light of all of the recent events surrounding the COVID 19 virus, we would like to assure people that we are optimistic that our season will continue as planned. As of right now the schools and establishments with public gatherings of 50 or more, have closed down operations until April 3rd and reopening after that. There has been a lot of media speculation and articles floating around, we have been following the guidelines on the government of Ontario web link https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection.html. We will take every precaution necessary to ensure the cabins, office, aircraft etc will be sanitized and cleaned. Just think, a remote lake and private cabin with no one else around is the perfect place to be to relax and get away from it all.

We will keep you updated as things happen. Always feel free to call us at 807-227-5473 or email us at info@great-fishing.com if you have any questions.

On a lighter note, we have lots of birch bark around if we run out of toilet paper.
