I had to put on a sweater last night and I’ve already had to throw a few logs into my fireplace. That tells me it’s about to be the Busy Season here at Lopstick!
— The leaves begin to turn around the middle of September and the show lasts until the middle of October. We get loads of “leaf peepers” up here, and for good reason.
— It’s the last gasp for fly fishing on our Trophy Stretch, as anglers try to get in their last casts before the season officially ends on Oct. 15. Of course, as Head Guide Bill Bernhardt explains below, there’s still plenty of fishing to be had through the autumn months.
–Hunting season, for birds, opens October 1, and our Head Guide Dave Trahan previews what the season looks like, and explains what you should bring if you come up to track the grouse and woodcock.
–November 1 opens deer season. We have lots of hunters taking advantage of our hunting package at Lopstick. Keep in mind that Youth Hunting Weekend is October 25th and 26th.
— Hikers absolutely love the fall months: the temperatures are cool and the humidity is low and there are miles and miles of beautiful trails to explore. Just remember to pack some hunters orange to stand out while you are hiking.
— Our All-Terrain Vehicle trails are also open in Pittsburg until the last weekend in September. The cabins that have direct trail access are our cabins on Back Lake and Perry Stream. Again, with the beautiful colors all around, it’s a great time to get out and explore the many miles of maintained and marked trails to ride.
— Some of the guests we get in the fall are what we like to call the “Do-Nothings!” They come up to look at the leaves, or admire the views, or enjoy the cool air … and like to nestle in their comfortable cabins, with a nice fire or just veg with a glass of wine and a good book. Not a bad way to spend a weekend!
So whatever your pleasure, we’ve got it going on this fall at Lopstick. The staff are never too busy to welcome you and your family any time this fall.
