Gone Fishing

I passed by the Severn River on the way home from the cottage on Fathers Day and noticed these fishermen in the rapids. This is the area after the falls where it flows into Georgian Bay.

The central Ontario Severn River is 30 km or about 19 mi long. The river services many cottagers mostly only accessible by boat.  The river sees many yachts and large cruisers traveling from Lake Couchiching and Lake Simcoe near Orillia to Georgian Bay, or vice-versa.


In: in and around muskoka ontario, on the water, tripin around towns

    It is a lovely past time. I just shudder seeing them all standing up, sans life jackets! A dude around here died, his boat turned up, empty. So sad.

    I agree Jenn. Tragedy can strike even the best prepared and good swimmers as well. Freezing cold water, high currents and jagged rocks is not a great combo. Someone needs to invent a less intrusive life jacket so that there are no excuses, ever.
