A couple of days ago, I was chatting with one of our long time guests between flights and we were remembering the state of the outpost camps when Karen and I arrived in Ignace in 1985. A lot has changed over the years. We’ve had lots of help in turning things around but hard work and taking jobs on little by little has made Ignace Outposts one of the leaders in the fly in fishing industry.
The following pictures are of the Hilltop Lake cabin in the 80’s vs the Hilltop Lake cabin today.
Three high bunks, 12 in the cabin which measured 14 x 20. You really needed to like the guys in the group back in the day.
One opening window and no screens.
Trying to make the cabin more livable before we totally rebuilt the facilities.
Hilltop cabin today with hot and cold running water, showers, solar lights screen porch, 3 bedrooms, covered deck…
And the fishing is better now than 20 years ago because of our catch and consume policy. No longer are the biggest fish removed from the lake. They are returned to spawn new generations and to be caught again.
