Bearskin's former fishing guide, Mark, would sometimes return from a fishing trip on East Bearskin Lake grumbling about it being like "fishing on the Dead Sea." This was in spite of the fact that he almost always came back with a nice stringer of fish. The lake has always had a good supply of fish, but sometimes catching those fish has taken a little extra sffort. Plus, some years the fishing is just better than other years.
So far, this is a very good fishing year. It's been a cool start to the season, with many folks saying we're 2 weeks behind the normal fishing schedule. That just means that the easy fishing season could extend farther into the summer.
