Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Tuesday, October 30, 1973 The fish lady of Cameron Bay CAMERON BAY, most resorts on Great Bear Lake come and go like the lake's frequent squalls. Branson's Lodge has weathered 10 years and looks forward to more. The reason for the success of the million fishing lodge 50 miles from the Arctic Circle is an un- usual woman who has held three world fishing records Jeanne Branson. "I can't tolerate inef- ficiency at any says Mrs. Branson. "When I want something done I want it done now and I want it done well." Her firmness probably accounts for the migrancy of many of the lodge's 50 employees, who shuffle in and out on once a week flights from Edmonton. But this doesn't bother the boss a bit. "If they can't hack it un- der my rules, they she said. Mrs. Branson allows her guides, for example, three beers a day after they have returned home with a fishing party. "If you give my boys one drink you'll be in deep trouble and I'll run the guide right off the she said. Few accept her challenge. Discipline in the strictest form is required to survive in the North and Mrs. Branson has lived in the Northwest Territories for 25 years. Now in her 50s, she has been involved with the out- doors since her father packed his family of nine onto a boat in Belgium and took them to a ranch in southern Alberta. The North began to interest Jeanne when the family moved to Edmonton, where she trained huskies for use in the Arctic.

"I landed in Cameron Bay some time after the war and I couldn't believe it. Here was a settlement, probably originated sometime in the 1880s, which appeared the perfect place to live, yet was deserted. All I saw were mining claims on every tree and every post. "When I came, the In- dians had torn down all but three buildings for firewood. The only buildings they left standing were the RCMP head- quarters and two Hudson's Bay trading posts." It was here, on the eastern coast of Great Bear Lake, that the Bran- sons decided to build their lodge. "I had always told myself there must be someplace, somewhere in the world where the fish bite every day, and I found it." Mrs. Branson briefly held the world record for lake trout and currently holds the records for Arc- tic char and Arctic grayling.
