i usually stay at the first ones on the lake i think they are called evergreen. those guys can be meatheads some times but usually have good info on surrounding lakes. maybe they just dont take well to the younger crowd though, even though i have never given them any grief. stayed at white moose a long time ago but didnt find them any more welcoming just got back from there two days ago and the fishing was slow. the only flies that were producing all the time were green spratleys with a bit if red on the tail about 20 to 40 feet down. tried another lake 50km away toward bonaparte lake and caught two over 20" and lost a few others, but it seemed fishing was pretty slow. going back friday night with the girlfriend and hitting a few lakes around loon to see if they are doing any better. good luck.
