The sunsets are getting earlier each night as we begin to approach the winter solstice.
The above sunset was taken at 8:03 pm on Friday September 11, 2020.
Fact: We hope summer warmth will certainly visit this September, but fall is finally in the air as we near the autumnal equinox. This year’s equinox occurs Sept. 23 at 4:21 a.m. Eastern time. At that time, the sun can be seen directly overhead along Earth’s equator, marking the beginning of astronomical fall in the Northern Hemisphere.
Tomatoes are harvested, zucchinis have grown to be monsters and the forest renders its unique puffballs. It is soon time to begin preparing the garden beds for the fall and winter.
Isn’t nature and the outdoors wonderful?
The bass and brook trout season is also winding down with the season ending in most places in Ontario at the end of September. Steelhead coming!
Fact: Water temperature controls the movement of steelhead. Once the river temperature is between 42 degrees and 35 degrees (Fahrenheit) you can expect to find steelhead in the fast-moving flows, searching for food. Once the river temperature drops below 35 degrees (Fahrenheit) it is wise to place most attention on deeper pools, where the flow is almost nonexistence.

Let us begin thinking “eating pow”
This photo was taken last year on February 28,2019 at Beaver Valley Ski Clubs Men’s Day.
This year when skiing starts, you will most likely need a face mask while standing in line and riding the chairlift.
Get yours early.
