The summer heat is on…and at record highs. So, many of you are planning weekend getaways to enjoy the great outdoors…in particular, lakes, ponds or beaches to keep cool.
We’ve gathered a list of reminders to keep your adventures fun and safe:
- Always swim with a buddy
- Young children should always be accompanied by an adult
Lakes and Rivers
- Be mindful: Jagged rock, garbage or broken glass (wear protective footwear), weeds and grass
- Avoid diving unless you know the depth of the water
- Be careful of water current, it can be very powerful
- Watch out for the signs and posting by life guards to know what the conditions of the water might be
- Waves are powerful and can get rough
Weather: If a storm is looming, get out of the water. You don’t want to be in it if lightening strikes.
Have fun and play safe.

Warm weekends are here which means many Canadians will resume their boating life with friends and family – and that includes dropping their lines in hopes of a catching fish. From the online resource, Discover Boating Canada, take a look at these insider fishing tips from pro angler J.P. DeRose:
1. Line: Without a doubt, the biggest cause of frustration for anglers deals with line and the misuse of it. When using monofilament or fluorocarbon lines, spinning reels should be loaded with 10 lb test or less. Conversely, bait casting reels perform best with 12 lb test or more. When loading up with braided lines which have a fraction of the diameter of monofilament, 30 lb test or less on spinning and 40 lb test or more on bait casting are best. By following these guidelines you will achieve better casting performance and spend far less time trying to undo tangles.
