The Atikokan area provides excellent year-round birding opportunities for visiting birders. The landscape is a mix of low, rolling hills and many lakes of varying size. Boreal forest covers the land with conifers predominating. In addition to the two main paved highways (11 and 622), hundreds of kilometers of gravel bush roads afford easy access throughout the area.
Canoe the peaceful lakes and watch the lilies freshly bloom in the morning light as you drift over the water. The lake grasses move underwater like mermaid hair. Startle a moose and her new baby on the edge of the water as you search amongst the lakes edge for the entry to the estuary, hidden in grasses and reeds…and paddle the afternoon away along tranquil waterways teeming with birds and wildlife.
Why would anyone be interested in the Atikokan Bass Classic if they weren’t competing in it?
