Premier signaled travel restriction above 53rd parallel may soon be lifted, though no firm date released
May 22, 2020
Monster lake trout, pike and pickerel lure anglers to northern lake lodges every summer, but it appeared some of those fish were off the hook when the pandemic closures hit Manitoba.
First it was the Canada-U.S. border closure in March. Then came northern Manitoba travel restrictions above the 53rd parallel in mid-April.
Kenanow Lodge on Kississing Lake, accessible by road about 50 kilometres northeast of Flin Flon, was one of many remote lodges forced to cancel bookings into late June.
But now, as the province signals plans to loosen the northern travel rule, Kenanow co-owners Chris and Sheryl Matheson wonder if they may be able to salvage some of the season after all.
