Fishing season is here and the Healy nephews have the early lead in the Childrens’ Fish Contest

Like something from the depths shoals are appearing through  the ice on April 7

A nice day to sit and read on April 7

The TLA dock is finally clear – note snowmobile trail heading towards Loon Lodge

Spring is here and the maple sap is running

Time to bring in some more water.

Break ins continue to plague lake residents – This boathouse door was kicked in.

Harold Keevil sends along some pictures taken March 26 of some of Temagami’s environmental hotspots by the Friends of Temagami “Airforce”.

Some of these show how close the environmental destruction by clearcutting comes to the area’s waterways.  Others show newly threatened treasures.

We invited Friends of Temagami to speak at this year’s AGM at Camp Wabun on July 29.
