ice fishing on the Annapolis River

Ice fishing on the Annapolis River in Nova ScotiaIce fishing on the Annapolis River in Nova Scotia

Yesterday what started out as a walk along the old train bed turned into a walk on the river.  The little huts or shacks are out for ice-fishing so you have to figure that the ice is pretty solid.  It was great walking…all the wind had brushed the snow off (into drifts on the path we abandoned). The shacks are made of every material imaginable: wood, plastic, nylon, canvas, and metal and they come in all colours too.  Earlier in the month there were more out on the river, but I didn’t catch any photos.  The numbers of huts and shacks shrink as fish numbers shrink.  Smelts are the fish of choice, but apparently eel are possible to catch as well.

A lonely bench waiting for spring and river fun.
