Virginiatown Community Park & Boat Launch/Marina

Larder Lake

Ontario, Canada

Easily accessible location beside the boat launch where the picnic table sits . This is close to the eastern most point of Larder Lake where the river flows into the lake from other lakes. This is also where the Kerr Adison mine operated for many decades as one of the largest gold mines in the world at the time of it's peak production. Back then mine tailings were routinely dumped directly into the lake here...fortunately the mine has been closed for a long time.

Partly cloudy with a lot of rain in past 24 hours. Saw a red fox on the highway near here as I cycled back from testing. Several people fishing tonight and I talked with some and gave them cards about WR. They were hoping to catch bass, trout and pike.
