Farewell to Nimmo

Had a number of fun shots Ron and I took around Nimmo that I wasn’t sure what to do with so I decided to combine them in a miscellaneous post.

For starters, the average water temperature up this way in open water is around 50 degrees – way too cold to swim. The smaller bays, however, warm in late summer to the low to mid 70’s making for a refreshing dip in the event your chosen water activity goes sideways.

The water around Nimmo is still a bit chiller as the bay is fed by snow melt and spring water from the surrounding mountains. It is interesting how things changed from our first visit to our last. The water fall is a mere shadow of what it was in June. This year was particularly dry and Craig (owner of Nimmo) told us that he switched from hydropower to diesel generator a full month earlier then usual.

Heli-fishing is big at Nimmo – someones chariot awaits for the next day of fishing.

Nimmo is well equipped so anglers need not bother with their own gear.
