Fishing Photos

Hi All! 

Let's see some of your favourite fishing photos from Algonquin Park this year! I only made it on 3 trips this year (6 nights total) and hope to make up for it next year.

Re: Fishing Photos

Horrible photo I know but it was a pine marten at my campsite on the petawawa river. First time I had ever seen one before.

Re: Fishing Photos

Nice photos, Lenny.  Where'd you get the Walter, in the river or the big lake?

Re: Fishing Photos

I'll play along. All photos were from the 2017 season in APP.. mostly everything was caught while solo at undisclosed (mostly all catch and release) locations. boy I cant wait to get back out there!

Re: Fishing Photos

Very nicely done!! I'm still jealous of your epic fishing on Louisa. Can't beat catching lakers right from the campsite! That smallmouth on the canoe paddle is a monster as well.

Swift Fifteen- Walters were caught on the Petawawa. Crazy that according to the MNR's fish consumption guide there's more contaminants in a Petawawa walleye than an Ottawa River or Rideau River walleye.

Railbed. Guaranteed.

Re: Fishing Photos

I only got into the park twice for a few nights each time.  Was not able to land a huge number of fish but I got some good quality.

Yep agreed. I'd like to see it cleaned up and turned into a hiking trail.

Great idea but who's going to pay for the clean up of the contaminated ballast, not to mention the creosote laden ground from the pre existing ties. Once you begin a clean-up on a rail bed it never ends like the feasibility studies suggest. I haven't walked that rail bed in many years but i suspect it's the same as any other.

Agreed it will probably never happen in my lifetime and may never happen. I don't think it's unfeasible remove the creosote and cap the railway with asphalt and cap the side slopes with geotextile and add topsoil and a native seed mixture. I've seen it happen before but on a much smaller scale.

I was only referring to removing the contaminants, which is highly unlikley. To turn it into a green space like youre suggesting is in fact unfeasible $$$ and better left for dreamers and leprechauns..lol.  But i certainly applaud your optimism.

Btw, i completely agree with Peek regarding the rail bed and walleye connection due to leeching contaminants from creosote and other contaminates left behind form wooden ties, rail cars, and maintenance crews. That creosote is a nasty substance filled with carcinogens, amongst other harmful contaminants.
