Outdoor Journal Radio – February 18 2017


It’s the Family Day Holiday weekend! With great weather, everyone will be outdoors!
Across Ontario and much of Canada, it’s licence free fishing weekend. How do you count moose over a vast area in Northern Ontario in the dead of winter? Emilie Kissler from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry will join Angelo to talk about the science behind moose surveys.

Scott Jamieson from Cooper Tire, takes Angelo on a journey to the San Antonia testing site. Before a tire is approved for market, it runs the gauntlet of mud holes, road gardens, hill climbs and the race track. Angelo wonders if Scott would let him be the tester for a day!

On the Go Fish in Ontario segment, Keith Sayers joins Angelo from Melwel Lodge near Iron Bridge. The lodge is located 2 hours west of Sudbury and offers some great fishing options for families and hard core fishermen.

How long will it be until grass carp are found in most Southern Ontario lakes and rivers? Becky Cudmore from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, will join Angelo to talk about the recent report that grass carp are now in Lakes Erie, Michigan and Ontario.
