SPRING IS IN THE AIR                                       March, 2012
Spring at Mission Oak Inn is the season for blooming flowers, migrating birds such as blue grossbeaks and scarlet tanagers, migrating ducks, hunting morel mushrooms and ramps (wild leeks) in our timber, excellent fishing, the return of the hummingbirds in late April, outdoor fires, hiking our trails, treats from our garden (like our own fresh asparagus), in-room massages, beautiful sunsets, or just relaxing on the deck with your favorite book or glass of wine.
 
                  
    
 
 
 
FISHING REPORT 
The trout fishing is excellent.  They have already grown a lot and they love the cold water.  The crappie and bass are also starting to bite.  The trout are biting on small jigs, spinners, and worms.  No one has caught a perch or muskie that we stocked last fall.  Here is a photo of Denny with a rainbow trout and a nice crappie.

HOW FAR AHEAD DO I NEED TO PLAN TO GET A ROOM?
This is a question we are frequently asked.  The answer is:  if you need a certain weekend date, you should always start looking early.  As of this writing, we have one room available this Saturday, March 10 and Fridays, March 23 & 30.  The next weekend date open is May 4 & 5.  That is the only weekend dates available until early June.  The weekends in June, September, and October are filling up too.  Weeknights are a little easier to get, but you still don't want to wait too long.  Here is a link to our calendar which is always current:   http://www.webervations.com/magic-scripts/resbook.asp?memberid=missionoak
