Ralph Bice Lake, Algonquin

The kids and I made it out for our spring fishing trip to Algonquin back in May. We went Mother's Day weekend this year, which is later than usual for us. The fishing was a bit slow but the fish we caught were all a nice size. The weather started out very summer like and wandered through all 4 seasons before settling on mid-winter by Sunday.

Peter got pretty cold in the rain on the Friday but a portage and some dry clothes back at camp got him warmed up. In the end it all worked out, but I did think about heading home Saturday if the weather hadn't improved or (more importantly) if the kids were getting too cold. I wasn't quite as rigorous about making sure they had enough gloves & hats this year but in the end I had enough spares in my own pack to get us through.
