Enjoy an unspoiled northern experience.
MNR&F has changed our fire rating to 'MODERATE". I do not believe we received enough rain last evening to dampen the forest floor as it takes several hours of steady rain to get though the trees to the forest floor. However, MNR&F is the determining office. I know that you get tired of hearing this but REMEMBER 310-3473 (FIRE).

Just had a visit from our neighbors (Brenda and Bob Schmidt) and was told that they might be interested in selling their camp. They did not indicate any price. If anyone is interested or knows of anyone that might be interested, they are listed in the MBA directory. They are heading home to Michigan tomorrow morning and might be back up in a few weeks. Their camp is located on the north east end of TP 744.

REMINDER - Nickle City Bass out of Sudbury has organized a bass tournament in McGregor Bay on July 20, 2019. There will be some very fast boats in the area during the tournament. So, be careful, especially at the many choke points within THE BAY.

Well, I have been waiting for the bass to show up around our docks. They finally did this week. Today, next to shore we can see a newly created spawn bed and the bass are just now spawning. Might be a good idea to NOT fish for bass as bass season begins. We need Mom and Pop Bass to finish their job so we can have MORE bass in the future. THANKS for your consideration.

New markers at Harrison Rock. REMEMBER - RED AND GREEN, GO BETWEEN.
I recently requested that Stillwater Marina place all of the tested fire pumps and gas cans in the fire pumps stations by May 15, 2019. As previously stated, EVERYONE should know where the nearest fire pump station is located and we should all have a list of people (not just me but neighbors and friends) to call for help if a fire should start. ALL fires should be reported to MNR&F at…Continue

The McGregor Bay Association website is a fantastic website. I know that many (including myself) use the McGregor Bay Friends Facebook site but please DO NOT forget about the MBA site. Please post photos, blogs, stories, etc.. It is also a GREAT source of information about THE BAY, laws, rules, etc.. Events are posted for summer activities, especially for the months of June, July and August. If you want to communicate with association members about an event, you can create an event. If you…Continue

We have been very lucky this hot/dry summer season in that we had only one reported fire. Since the summer is over, the MBA fire pumps will be removed from the pump stations around October 15, 2018 and returned around May 15, 2019. Hopefully there will not be any fires but if you see an unattended and/or out of control fire call 310-FIRE (3473).

The NEMI Fire Ban has been lifted. If you open burn or barrel burn, PLEASE be very careful and please DO NOT leave the fire unattended. Remember 310-3473 (FIRE) if you see an out of control forest fire, then call your friends or neighbors for help. THANK YOU for observing the fire ban during this very dry summer.

Just contacted NEMI and the FIRE BAN is still in effect. I will continue checking and let you know if things change. Remember 310-3473 (FIRE).

Contacted NEMI and the FIRE BAN is still in effect. I have been advised by Laurie Cook that if you want you can call 705-368-3500 and hit "0" to get fire ban status during business hours. While MNR&F may not have part of THE BAY in a restricted area, NEMI has the ability to declare a fire ban. So, NO OPEN FIRES, please. Remember, if you see an unattended, out of control fire call 310-3473 (FIRE).

Just to let you know that the PAR033 fire is still considered "out of control" and we (NEMI) are still under a "FIRE BAN", which means NO OPEN FIRES, including the use of burn barrels. As I have said many times before, if you see an out-of-control fire call 310-3473 (FIRE) and provide MNR&F with the best possible description and location (GPS and/or grid map identification) of the fire.
Just a friendly reminder that the FIRE BAN is still in effect which means NO OPEN FIRES. It has been reported to me that someone is burning trash out in the open. Remember if MNR&F determines that you cause a forest fire, you may be held responsible for the total cost of fighting the forest fire along with the cost of replacing any structures.

NEMI has issued a FIRE BAN. NO OPEN FIRES are permitted. Please remember that if you cause a forest fire which requires MNR&F to respond, you may be held responsible for the cost of their involvement. Call 310-3473 (FIRE) for all out of control forest fires.…Continue
