It may be narrow, shallow and turbid over most of its length, but the South Nation River is a haven for anglers with a wide variety of finned species populating its waters. The SouthNation Conservation Authority (SNC) conducts annual fish habitat studies of the 120-kilometre stretch of the river as it winds through the watershed. The end-of- summer assessment reconfirms the South Nation River as a “vibrant fishery” and a sports angler’s paradise. The South Nation River stretches from its headwaters, north of Brockville, to its mouth in the Ottawa River near Plantagenet. Every year SNC technicians do test netting in one of the six reaches of the river: Plantagenet, Lemieux, St-Albert, Berwick, Hyndman, or Spencerville. Sampling is done using hoop

nets. After a 24-hour period, the nets are retrieved and the number, weight, measure- ment and age of species caught are recorded. This summer the St. Albert reach was sampled, with a total of 228 fish caught, logged and released. Results mirrored samples taken in 2011. Of the total, 81 were brown bullhead, with yellow perch, northern pike, and walleye also filling the nets, along with several other species. The largest fish caught was a 555mm-long greater redhorse that weighed in at 1.92 kg; the smallest fish was a 25-gram pumpkinseed. While the South Nation River isn’t widely recognized as a fishing haunt, licensed an- glers in the know frequent the St. Albert reach for smallmouth bass and crappie, which are abundant and well fed. Each reach provides different fishing opportunities.

Go, Nats, go! The Rockland Nationals junior C club has a series of intersquad games on the pre-season schedule for September. But there are at least two exhibition games slated for the next two weekends for fans who want to see what kind of potential the local team has for the new season. The Nats are home for the Sept. 10 weekend with a Saturday noon exhibition game at the Clarence-Rockland Arena against Gatineau-Hull Volant. The Nats are back at the arena the following Sunday at noon against the Papineauville Vikings. The following weekend the Nats head over to Embrun for an evening game at 8 p.m., Sept. 16, against host club, the Embrun Panthers, followed the next night in Papineauville against the Vikings again, and then Sunday afternoon, at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau, against the Volant. These last three games will determine final cuts for the team roster before the start of the regular season schedule. – Gregg Chamberlain
