SCANLON CREEK WALLEYE SPAWNING REHABILITATION PROJECT 

The Wolfe Lake Association, in partnership with the Westport Area Outdoor Association, the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Camp Iawah, is pleased to announce a fish habitat enhancement project to benefit the spawning walleye of Wolfe Lake.  Work will take place on Scanlan Creek, which empties directly into Wolfe.  Through countless generations, this creek has supported spawning walleye until roadway and private-access culvert placements restricted their ability to travel further upstream; the water flow dynamic of the creek was also negatively impacted. A volunteer team will be rehabilitating a section of the creek to better attract and facilitate spawning walleye by removing debris and adding Ministry-approved rock substrate to the creek bed, sourced from Tackaberry G & Sons Construction Co Ltd out of Seeley’s Bay.  A grant application was submitted to the Toronto Dominion Friends of the Environment; it was accepted, and we will now be gaining some financial support for the project, thanks to their generosity. It is with great optimism that we will begin this work in the late summer/early fall, to facilitate the reproductive success of Wolfe Lake’s walleye population. This rehab project, coupled with the in-place protective slot-size fishing regulations, will support and potentially enhance our lake’s walleye fishery.  Stay tuned for more updates and details on the project (look for a featured article in this year’s Wolfe Lake Association Magazine)!

Rosemary’s Bird Report

Green Lake and area bird list 2014 by Rosemary Anderson

Tent Caterpillars – Conversations with some cottagers on Wolfe Lake has shown that the identity of the problem caterpillars this year is misplaced.  Although we do have minor numbers of tent caterpillars and gypsy moth caterpillars this year the serious infestation is the Forest Tent Caterpillar which (contrary to their name) does not produce a tent at all.  They have seriously defoliated the trees along our shore, although the trees are producing replacement leaves already.
