Smallmouth Bass on Mazinaw Lake

September 5, 2018

Although there's still plenty of fishing season left, this post marks my final 2018 blogging trip in Lennox & Addington County. I'm so grateful to have had the chance to work with Lennox & Addington County over the past few weeks as I explored the region documenting my fishing adventures. For the final stop on this memorable tour, I headed off to chase smallmouth bass on Mazinaw Lake with my significant other and our pup. I hadn't been to this area since I was a kid so it was wonderful to revisit this location, which is even more beautiful than I remembered.

The L&A County Dark Sky Viewing Area - The Best of Ontario’s Dark Side

Amateur astronomers have it tough these days. Urban sprawl is expanding, and with it, the light pollution is destroying our views of the night sky. Seeing anything but the moon, planets and brightest stars in close proximity to these dense urban centres is difficult to impossible. This is  true anywhere, but extremely prevalent in Southern to Southeastern Ontario along the Highway 401 corridor where I live. This region has the highest population density in Canada, and as a side effect, some of the worst and farthest reaching light pollution in the country.

My latest adventure lead me to the north part of the region to see what species we could find while fishing on Weslemkoon Lake.

From the ridiculous (Alice in Wonderland was once banned because it features talking animals!) to the shocking (1 of 4 American haven’t read a book in the past year!), I love learning fun facts and trivia about books. Here, I have rounded up some of the most interesting:
