Rideau River and Lakes
RIDEAU RIVER AND LAKES—Kingston is the starting point for this district, if the journey is to be all the way by boat, and here the steamers of the Rideau Lakes Navigation Co., Ltd., are taken for the trip through these waters. Although there are several places where tourists can fmd accommodation, Jones' Falls, Chaffey's Locks and Westport are the principal resorts. The route is through some of the finest fishing grounds. Bass and pickerel are plentiful and maskalonge of from 20 to 40 pounds weight abound. The whole district is a paradise of anglers. Black bass were caught recently near the falls weighing 5 pounds, and pickerel 7 pounds, white Oswego, or green bass, tipped the scales at 8 1/2, and pike at 18 pounds. In the lakes are caught the spotted, strawberry, calico bass or croppie; salmon trout and other game fish generally.
