Special Note Regarding the 2021 Fishing Season With Respects to our US and International Guests
Just a short update on what is happening up here in Winter Harbour at the moment, plus a special update with regards to our US / International guests and the current Covid19 situation.
We are up and running this summer, although at a reduced capacity.
With what has happened in the world this last year, we were hoping that things would of settled down and we would be able to get back to normal for the 2021 season, but even with the current global vaccine roll out, we can’t see the Canadian borders opening up to US or International travel in the next few months. Our Provincial Health Office has hinted (has not said definitively) that international travel most likely won’t resume until the late summer or early fall of 2021. This will be dependant on how the vaccinations are unfolding in our country and those that would like to travel to Canada.
For all the guests who had booked dates for the 2020 summer season but were unable to make it due to the Covid19 situation – and who also pushed the dates and deposits for 2021, we will set you up on the calendar for the 2021 season as planned. If the borders do not up in time for you to come fishing with us this year, you will have the option to push deposits/dates for the 2022 season or get a full refund – we will leave the decision in your hands.
For any new US or International guests, we will not be taking any new reservations or deposits at this time. We feel that due to the uncertainty of whether or not the borders will be open up in time for the 2021 summer season, it will be ethically wrong for us to accept bookings/deposits until there is a definite time-line of international travel.
For all of our of guests who will be fishing with us this summer, we are still following all COVID-19 protocols as per the Provincial Health Office, while at the lodge or out on one of our charters.
If the borders continue to stay closed for the 2021 season, we will definitely miss all of our US and International guests again. Many of you have been with us every year for the last couple of decades – we truly look forward to having you up here every summer. We hope to see everyone who could not make it in the 2020 season, either in the summer of 2021 (hopefully) or summer of 2022.
