We left downtown Toronto at 7:00 AM and adopt the fastest way: Gardiner-DVP-hwy 401-hwy 115-hwy 7-hwy 28-Long Lake Rd. It took us 2 hrs only!
|Long Lake. View from the launch site.|
We went initially along the main left channel of the lake and then adopt right channel rounding the Brown Island. Northwest of the Island we tried to paddle a small channel to the North, but very soon were stopped by beaver dam and turned back.
Heading further to the West along the main channel we began to put our warms into any deep place at the rocks and have a lot of fun catching bass of various sizes (of course we released them immediately, because the season for it will begin only on 4th Saturday of June (June 25 this year). In such a way we arrived at the campsite 401 on the right (North) bank. Here we stayed for 1-2 hrs. Ate, swam, relaxed. We were agreeably surprised that there were no mosquitoes at all. may be it was partly due to light wind which came from time to time from the West.
From this point we turned back and followed another (South) shore to the launch spot.
