Fishing - Canyon Lake





CLICK TO ENLARGE



Canyon Lake is located near Kenora, Ontario in the northwestern portion of the province near Manitoba. This morning photo promises a perfect day of fishing for muskie, walleye and small mouth bass. Muskie monsters have been caught ranging in size from 25 to 50 pounds.

50 lbs?? Now those are muskies! I was 3 hours north of Toronto this past weekend for a training seminar. The weather was great and the surrounding scenery beautiful.

Reader Wil said...

I could sit for hours near a lake like that! Lovely photo, Barbara.

Charles Gramlich said...

oh wow, why does a hint of fog just scream good fishing?

Josh said...

great, now i want to go fishing. :)

RuneE said...

Noe that is a picture I would have loved to have been responsible for! And obviously you get enough provisions too...

Leah J. Utas said...

What a beautiful, peaceful spot.

Leigh Russell said...

I almost feel as though I can breathe more freely staring at that photo, Barbara. It's beautiful.

Teresa said...

Forget the fishing, give me a canoe! This lake is beautiful. I love the early morning mist.

ideal, except for no mountains ;) lol

Rick, perhaps you were doing an outward bound session, learning how to live in the wilderness with nothing but a knife.

Wil, as could I.

Charles, the morning fog had the same affect on me.

Barbara Martin said...

Josh, this is the whole idea of the fishing location photos on Tuesday to get back into nature for rejuvenation from the city life.

RuneE, I suppose I should start taking my own photos since I seem to have an eye for picking them out.

Leah, it seems so.

Barbara Martin said...

Leah, most nature photos have the same affect on me, which is why I post them for others to enjoy.

Teresa, there are many rivers and lakes in northern Ontario to explore, this being only one of them.

Tony, this is isn't too far from Wood Mountain, couple hundred miles or so.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful scenic shot. The reflections in the water are very nice.

Phoenix C. said...

How beautiful and tranquil, Barbara. Is that mist over the water?

laughingwolf said...

long walk, that ;)

Gallow said...

Stunning. I was with my brother-in-law when he caught a 48 inch muskie, and I thought that was huge. I can't imagine how large the 25 to 50 pound fish are.

What an incredible photo. It has so many great elements, and wonderful color.

Pam said...

A really beautiful photo Barbara.It must have been wonderful being in such a place.

Marian said...

I don't think I've ever seen water so blue.

Your photographs always make me wish I was more into hiking and climbing. :)

Barbara Martin said...

Rajesh, thank you.

Phoenix, mist it is.

Tony, it's always worth the walk.

Barbara Martin said...

Steven, for the muskies to get so large there must be some kind of growth serum in the water.

Pam, Kenora is a lovely place. Once I thought I wanted to live there year round.

Marian, you could always start with High Park and work your way into longer walks.
