And finally, a very big thanks to park superintendent Ryan Gardner (above left, and no relation to me—at least as far as we could figure out), and assistant superintendent Rob Fortin (above right). As well as keeping the park running smoothly in winter—which is no small job—they’re both anglers, and they very generously shared some great fishing tips. And thanks as well to the whole Ontario Parks team for their help in setting up this great getaway.
