Interesting Area Facts
West Nipissing is home to an immense and diverse water shed large parts of
which see little angling pressure (a handful of locals) and the fishing here is phenomenal. Perhaps the most interesting least known aspect of this place is that it is location of a broad ecotone between two forests; The Boreal of Ontario's North and the St Lawrence of the South.
They call this place nature country with good reason:
Ecotone: "....Forest do not exist in a vacuum. Most forests are surrounded by different types of habits such as varying aged fields, croplands, or residential areas. The boarder between two types of habitats, such as where a forest meets a field is called an ecotone. Ecotones are composed of a mixture of species from the neighboring habitats but are, in their own way, unique.......The species richness of ecotones is often higher than that of either the bordering habitats because the ectone contains species from both habitats"1
It's easy to understand what a positive effect the area's geographic
location has on the quality and quantity of fish. Come Fish West Nipissing!
