Got an update from one of my Canadian fishing buddies, that says the Canadian border will be closed until at least 03/21/21. That won't bother me, as long as they open it by 04/21/21. Which, I don't think will happen. I wonder how many resorts went belly up? I would think they would just close up shop and tighten their belts.

I agree with you.

We have reservations in June (NW Ontario). I am worried about our trip - we missed it last year, and am worried about it for this year.

I don't know how camps could go two years without business (which is almost all from the U.S.) and stay afloat!

Well, I would not expect them to open anytime soon. I am not optimistic for June even.

I am not optimistic the border will be open by June either.

The two country leaders are meeting today, maybe the border will be part of the discussion . . . OK, I guess that was a pretty optimistic thing to say!

I am not optimistic that the border will be open by June . . . but hopeful.

Maybe build a bridge from MN to Canada instead of New York to Canada - oh wait, we already have one.
I met yet ANOTHER person who owns a resort up there by the border - this is killing folks on both sides.
It IS interesting, my brother in law was in South Padre and said they just walked back and forth to Mexico easy peasey all last week - I guess if Mexico were closer and had the same kind of fishing and scenery I could move to Texas and stop griping

My guess is it will be opened on Sept. 21st, just late enough to eliminate all canadian fishing.

Does anyone think we've got anything better than a 20% chance of Canadian fishing starting May 21st?
