    EGL 2019 Spring-Summer-Autumn Season




    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd post a tentative (hammockative?) schedule for 2019. As always, there's an open invite to anyone wanting to attend.


    • Spring: Depending on ice out, first (new moon) or second weekend (waxing moon) of May - Chicamoula. Why? Trout and the safety of paddling flat, albeit frigid water.


    • Summer: Late July/early August - French River. Summer water temps for any swift water areas, reduced bugs.


    • Summer: Sometime - Nogonash Lake. Backcountry bushwack to an allegedly great bass/pike lake.


    • Early Fall: End of September - Killarney. If you've never paddled Killarney, you really should. A simple trip to OSA or Norway lake with maybe a day hike up to Silver peak.


    • Late Fall: Mid-October - Algonquin in time for the colours because, well, you know..... Easy paddle in.


    I'll be posting a new thread for each outing.

    See you out there!

    This is the year we (or at least I) do Killarney. Would also really enjoy a trip back to Noganosh. I will look forward to the updates.

    April 26th is the 5 month booking window for the end of september. I will try to book 2 sites (for 3 nights) on OSA lake on that day (thurs-sun).

    My wish list is French River, Killarney, Algonquin. I've still got plenty of question marks so at this point I will be happy to paddle any of those. I'd love to do all five but I definitely know I'm not ready for Chicamoula. Besides I'm already the current EGL title holder at McIntosh Lake for trout. Will I be dethroned?!?
    Hanging in the woods, paddlin and catching trout- My kind of living...

    Only one I'm likely to miss is Killarney. Everything else sound terrific to me, glad somebody else is doing the heavy lifting of planning ahead. Promises to be another great hanging season. Thanks Chard!

    That's a great idea. That park fills up so fast!
    Thanks

    Don't know how I'll feel at the time but on the spring trip I'm considering going through potter's Creek on the way out. More portaging but I haven't been through there or Brule and I love winding creeks.

    Assuming dates are clear I hope to participate with these 3 (at least). I'll be happy if I can coordinate on at least 1 - 2!

    Summer: Late July/early August - French River. Summer water temps for any swift water areas, reduced bugs.
    Early Fall: End of September - Killarney. If you've never paddled Killarney, you really should. A simple trip to OSA or Norway lake with maybe a day hike up to Silver peak.
    Late Fall: Mid-October - Algonquin in time for the colours because, well, you know..... Easy paddle in.

    I'm trying to log in so that I don't miss the group stuff... Sorry to have missed last weekend at Valens.
