The spring side roads in Almaguin are a bit messy but the beauty surrounding them is worth a trip. Soon the buds and blooms will be appearing on the trees making the distant hills a new hue of pale green that only lasts for a short time before the full foliage appears.
With the ice sculptures on the rocks disappearing everyone is grateful this first week of April for the warm temperatures and the sunshine. The days of the ice huts are gone and are soon to be replaced by the people fish off the banks of our waterways for Yellow Perch, Crappie and Sunfish until the season opens for Walleye and Bass.
For people “chomping at the bit” to get fishing make sure what species are in season, for our Zone 15 information visit: http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/stdprodconsume/groups/lr/@mnr/@letsfish/documents/document/mnr_e001334.pdf
This warm sunshine will soon clear the rivers and lakes from the ice but don’t be fooled by calm looking water this time of year the water runs fast with underwater currents and the banks are slippery and dangerous for children and pets.
