My first camping trip of the year and I repeated my outing from last year to the Driftwood provincial park. The private beach access to the Ottawa River wowed me last year and was a major reason for my kayak purchase this year. I kind of forgot that there’s a bit of a hill between the campsite and the beach but I managed to haul the beast up and down alright. There were a couple issues with neighbouring campers but I consider this karma for the rude behaviour I exhibited in my youth. Besides, the real point of this trip was the fishing. So here’s pictures of all the fish I caught last weekend!
Yah, not so much with the fish. The fish finder said there were plenty to be had but they just weren’t interested in anything I had in my tackle box. If I go back, I have to remember some live worms. I did snag a couple bass on Sunday but they twisted off my favourite lure before I could get them in the boat. So, I suck. But I’ve always got Cross Lake in Cobalt where the fish are always biting.
And, just a reminder for myself. Always try and get sites 20 or 21. They are primeau for privacy.
