Fishing on Lake Temagami is a scene of near silence only interrupted by the sound a casting rod, a calling loon, or the incessant buzz of the voracious hordes of mosquitoes and black flies which populate the lake in late spring. This image reflects both the good an bad energies of the lake. A perfectly calm inlet such as this is a perfect haven for fishermen to seek out pike and bass in complete solitude - it also provides the perfect breeding ground for biting insects. Head nets and long clothes become a matter of necessity.
