Algonquin Park Canoe Trip Update for July 2012
July is a great month to see wildlife and this year is no different. Our blackboard at the Canoe Outpost reports “Lots of moose, bald eagles, otters, Merlin's, one black bear, white tailed deer, beavers, herons, ducks, northern flickers, and of course the loons. Fishing has been good. Cody took a personal trip down to the Nippising river and reeled in over a dozen brook trout. The bass fishing has also been great on North Tea and the Amable Du fond river where several 3 – 4 pounds have been caught by customers.
One of the highlights of summer is hosting families of all shapes and sizes. A canoe trip is a wonderful adventure that families can do together. This past July, we hosted families on 3 to 6 day canoe trips from as far away as the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Austria, Europe, China, Kenya , Poland the US and of course all across Canada. Our award winning 3 day family canoe trip is super convenient to book with scheduled trips going our every Monday and Friday. Private trips are a great alternative for families who want to travel deeper into Algonquin, have younger children or perhaps take a river trip to a different area of Ontario. (Picture French river with kids). Cody and Nick were out with families with a Duke of Edinburgh award candidate who were looking for help completing their final expedition.
This past Wednesday July 17, helicopters and MNR planes buzzed over us as the province issued a fire ban for all of Algonquin Park. Eastern Algonquin Park had a significant forest fire caused by lightning that ran 5 days until it was put out yesterday. It is amazing that it has been four weeks since we have had any significant rain !
