Stonehenge Conundrum in Northeastern Ontario
Myth or belief, maybe it is like the Loch Ness monster? You see what you want to see; you think what you want to think. What’s more fun than a mystery where you can write the ending? On a back road near a unique shoreline is a configuration of huge boulders that pose more questions than answers. The unusual aggregation of these rounded rocks may not have the same visual impact as Stonehenge, the prehistoric…
Blanding's turtle are crossing roads, in search of nesting grounds.
The snow has melted, buds are appearing, tulips are sprouting and ... turtles are on the move. It's turtle nesting season in Northern Ontario, which typically happens between May and July. This means there will be more turtle sightings as these mostly aquatic reptiles are searching for a nesting ground on land, but it also means the turtles are facing the highest fatality risk of their lives. Besides the vulnerability turtles face from predators in…
A Family Paddle on Lake Temiskaming/Upper Ottawa River
It’s true that Lake Temiskaming deserves the same respect given to other large water bodies, like Lake Superior or Lake Nipigon. But it’s also true that it’s an absolute paradise to paddle. Combine it with the upper stretch of the Ottawa River, right to the town of Mattawa, and you’ve got one perfect canoe or kayak trip. My wife, daughter, dog and I paddled this route a few years back, with another family. It added up to…
Using Jerk Baits to Catch Northeastern Ontario Brook Trout
Over the last few seasons, the spoons and spinners of my trout box have been sharing their quarters with an increasing number of minnow baits. Rooting through my bass and walleye gear is becoming regular procedure before sliding the canoe into the inland lakes that Northeastern Ontario brook trout call home. I'm looking for small, slender minnow baits, particularly those that suspend. Traditional trout favourites are still in rotation but small suspending jerk baits are…
Visit New Post Falls Before it is Reduced to a Trickle!
“All history,” the saying goes, is “contemporary history.” People instinctively turn to the past to help understand the present or “it isn’t often we can turn back the clock.” There is one journey to a destination in Northeastern Ontario where you will enjoy a breathtaking vista, a towering gorge and revel in the sounds of the roaring water as it plunges into a pool many tens of metres below. Because of the narrow gorge it…
Canoeing Killarney’s Northern Access - Less Crowds and Easier Portaging
A few years back I volunteered to paddle and portage the newly expanded section of Killarney Provincial Park - a section between the Panache Lake area and the northern range of the La Cloche Mountains. I re-discovered some perfect canoe and kayak routes through Panache, Bear and Walter Lakes - all connecting to the neighboring lakes already in the park. I recorded them in my guide book - A Paddlers Guide to Killarney and the…
Northern Lights, Milky Way and Full Moon: A Trifecta of Awesome, Manitoulin Island
Photos have been submitted by local talents within Northeastern Ontario. The camera settings used by these photographers have been shared to assist you in your pursuit to capture the Aurora.   With widespread and smaller communities in Northeastern Ontario, we have darker night skies, which means a clearer view of the stars and the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. While you can never guarantee you will see them, you can increase your odds if you…
