Pre-opening Scout!

With a May 1 start to the season, the weekend was a perfect time to get down the river again and see how it's shaping up. Fun level and with so much snow still up there and with the still-cool conditions, we look set for a long and fat peak of run-off. An excellent time on the river for wildlife. While we were a bit early to coincide with the Gerrard rainbows (we often see them migrating up to Gerrard to spawn, peaking around Mothers Day), we did see a lot of other action including a raven stealing an egg from a Canada Goose nest, a small and flighty herd of cow elk and a bit more graphically, a bald eagle feeding on a Canada Goose carcass. A bit tricky photographing and rowing at the same time but you get the picture :). The circle of life continues on the Lardeau! Bring it on 2017!
