Canada Day on the Rideau

July 1, 2008

There may be a slight upside for bass fishermen to skyrocketing gas prices. I find generally that shorelines exposed to boat wakes do not hold bass. Noting the absence of cruiser traffic today, I tried some tempting overhanging trees which have never produced for me before because of heavy traffic. To my surprise the fishing was good.

Nobody will regret the passing and possible extinction of personal watercraft (known locally as lake lice). I overheard a guy recently say that a friend of his had gone ballistic when he settled his tab at the marina. His two kids had managed to run over $1000 worth of fuel through one in a couple of weeks.

With an American guest aboard it wasn’t hard to do the proud Canuck bit on the balmy day amid the beautiful islands of Newboro Lake. Everything is fresh, green and vibrant, and it’s a great time to be alive in this country.
