Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, July 1, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD - IS N.Z. could attract more Canadians Fieldings issue new travel guide By J. C. GRAHAM Canadian Press Correspondent AUCKLAND (CP) - New Zealand could achieve spectacular results by interesting more Canadians in tourist visits, in the opinion of a tourist industry mission which has been touring North America. The mission, comprising delegates from many of New Zealand's main tourist organizations, appeared to feel there is more unrealized scope for attracting tourists from Canada than even the United States. The reason is that there are several New Zealand tourist of- WHERE FISHING IS A WAY OF LIFE - Mid-western. Canadian, waters abound in pike, walleye, lake trout, speckled trout, brown trout, rainbow trout and whitefish everywhere. Ontario and Manitoba also have bass and muskies; northern Manitoba and Sas-. katchewan provide a further bonus of exotic Arctic grayling. This beauty was caught in the Cranberry Lakes of Manitoba, north of the 54th parallel. (Canadian Government Travel Bureau Photo.) Practically unknown to Canadians Fine wilderness fishing By JOHN FOWLER As a fishing guide and outdoor writer, I've spent 15 years on Hie Canadian "beat". I should be an expert. But the more I see of the fishing in this country, the more difficult it becomes to report. There is just so darn much of it. Take that vast area of northwestern Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, for. example.-It's a region that offers what may well be the best wilderness fishing Canada ever had to offer. And it is practically unknown, save the Canadians who live there, and some mid-western Americans who have discovered it. EVERY INLAND SPECIES The area offers, outstanding fishing action with every inland species of game fish native to this country, and several species that have been introduced. There are pike, walleye, lake trout, speckled trout, brown trout, rainbow trout and white-fish everywhere. Ontario and Manitoba also have bass and muskies; northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan provide a further bonus of exotic Arctic grayling. Best of all, most of this total area is still wild and wonderful as only wildnerness Canadian bush can be. Sure, the black flies can be bothersome in early summr, and i3TSFe are a few lakes where an accumulation of natural mercury means you shouldn't eat the fish. But the flies can be beaten easily enough, and the contaminated lakes are very few in number (and all listed in the various provincial fishing regulations) out of hundreds of thousands of sparkling, pure waterways packed with game fish naive as only winderness fish can be. Any list of the fishing waterways in these provinces would be so long as to be meaningless. Here's a brief look at what each province has to offer. NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO North and west of Thunder Bay, on Lake Superior, is a rugged, rocky, spruce-clad wilderness that, seen from the air, seems almost deserted. The giant, 14%-pound speckled trout taken from the Nipigon River in 1915 is still the largest speckled the world has ever seen. "Trout", in this part of Canada, means wild speckled trout, most highly-prized of all Canada's fresh water game fish - or giant lake trout that can weigh 30, 40 or even 50 ponds or more. Kenora, on Lake of the Woods, is Canada's jump-off town for the finest fishing Ontario has to offer. There's the railroad, and many good, new roads, and bush aircraft that local sportsmen use as casually as Montrealers or Tor-ontonians use the subway. There are fine government campsites on all the roads, excellent lodges, and the finest of fishing camps on . the fly-in lakes. MANITOBA Manitoba is rich in wilder ness wagers and big fish. In 1970, this province produced a lake trout of 39 pounds, a pike of 41% pounds, a walleye al most 12 pounds and a speckled trout close to seven pounds, topping a total list of hundreds of trophy catches. Major fishing areas range from the WWteshell - Lac du [Bonnet region only 100 miles NEW LOW FARES FOR f#t YOUTHFUL TRAVELLERS GREATEST ATLANTIC FARE SLASH Since Flying Began!

Office open Monday thru Saturday 9 a.m. to Free Parking at Rear of Building 5 p.m. east of Winnipeg to the famed Gods River trout country of the Nejanilini region in the far north where outstanding trout, pike, and walleye are forced to compete with Arctic grayling and Arctic char. You can reach much fine fishing by car,, or even get to the wilderness fly-in fishing at some lodges (such as Fishing Lake) for as little as $400 per week including guides, food and return air transportation from Winnipeg. Fishing is for pike, walleye, speckled trout and lake trout - and that 41%. pound pike came from Fishing Lake Lodge, so it's top-notch country. As in Ontario, there is fine fishing and excellent camping close to the roads throughout Manitoba. SASKATCHEWAN Many Canadians think of this province as only a vast prairie of cultvated grain farms. Nothing could be further from the truth. Saskatchewan has more fjhan 31,000 square miles of lakes and streams, well stocked with five species of trout, pike, walleye, whitefish and Arctic grayling. The good fishing, while in the north, isn't necessarily a fly-in proposition. The Hanson Lake Road, for example, a great looping highway from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, to Flin Flon, Manitoba, passes through wilderness mixed forest country loaded with lakes with every sort of game fish. In some of the lakes, right along' the road, 10-pound rainbow trout are quite common, and 12- and 15-plunders are taken every season! It's also possible to drive to Arctic grayling fishing Delfcon Lake, a small lake only a few minutes by boat from Lac La Ronge - and it is probably the only Arctic grayling fishing in Canada that can be reached without an aircraft. The roads push far into northern Saskatchewan, with new highways opening near-virgin fishing every season. On all the highways there are good government campg rounds, housekeeping cabins, motels and hotels. Boats are available at most fishing areas. The far north is dotted with fly-in fishing camps which offer fishing to compare with the best anywhere. In short, mid-western Canada is, in every sense, a truly fabulous fishing country - only now beginning to be explored by anglers from the rest of Canada. Perhaps it's time you took a look? Mennonite Museum WINNIPEG - The Mennonite Village Museum complex, two miles north of Steinbach, Man., will eventually recreate an entire village on its 40-acre site, as it would have been built after 1874 when the first settlers, led by Jacob Wiens, arrived in the Red River Valley from Russia. A log cabin thatched with straw has been moved to the village site where a smokehouse, pens for livestock and stake fences surrounding vegetable gardens will soon be constructed by the Manitoba Mennonite Historical Society. A church, wind - driven grist mill, blacksmith shop, sawmill, cheese factory, bakery and general store will be completed by 1974, 100th anniversary of the arrival of the Mennonites in Manitoba. fices already in the United States but none in Canada. The National Travel and Holiday Association, an organization of companies and people interested in tourism, intends to urge the government to establish a tourist office in Canada. The association's chief executive, N. E. Lobb, said on returning from North America that Canada has "tremendous tourist potential" for New Zealand. HOTELS INEXPENSIVE Per head of population, Canadians travel overseas in larger numbers than Americans, he said. "The main destination for Canadians in the past has been Europe and then the Caribbean," he said, "but their attention now is turning to the Pacific where they can go during the severe northern winter." A hotel room in the peak Caribbean tourist season now costs as much as $60 a day. Even though the air fare to New Zealand costs more, the price of fccommodation is much lower. But New Zealand will not capture the market unless it has a separate tourist office in Can ada. The government tourist and publicity department has an office in New York to serve the Canadian market. But Canadians d*r not like to be served from the United' States. The establishment of a separate office in Canada would be expensive, but the results possibly spectacular. Rooms at the top international standard hotel in New Zealand are available at from $14 a day single. In many other good standard tourist hotels prices start considerably lower. Tips for young tourist By JANE E. HUCKVALE rpHE FIELDINGS - Temple and his Nancy - already known to North American travellers for their famous Travel Guide to Europe are now cashing in on this one, geared to the needs of the less well heeled and let's face it - the young tourist - who can put up with a minimum of creature com-i forts in his quest to see the j world. They have sent their sleuths to 26 Western European cities to case accommodation-youth hostels, rooms for "pennywise fat cats," "roof, doorknobs and bed" and "cap, gown and quad" facilities. Also included, air fare bargains, sea and train travel, restaurants and shopping advice. There is information on the clothes you'll need, what to take with you and what to buy when you get there; hitchhiking dos and don'ts, jobs (don't count on getting one), plus miscellaneous tips which are certainly worth investigating. A warning to those morons who may be thinking of taking along a little grass secreted in brassieres or blue jeans - the authors say that even the smallest amount discovered by any official is very likely to land you in jail where the consul, or representative of the Department of External affairs can do very little to alleviate the misery you've brought upon yourself. The soft cover edition of "super economy" costs $3.75 - a bulky bargain well worth the price. My inclination is to recommend it highly simply because I've bad good reason to trust the aforementioned Travel Guide for many years. A professional travel writer from the Toronto Telegram also gives the nod to "Europe on Five Dollars a Day" but as I haven't had a chance to compare the two I can only suggest you take a look at both. If you should find Super Economy Guide a little bulky, cut out the pages referring to the cities you expect to visit, staple them together and leave the irrelevant ones behind. If I were (and how I wish I were) in the youthful super-economy category, I'd probably buy both and economize on clothes, luggage, or go without a meal or two to have them. Penticton asks tax on tourists PENTICTON, B.C. (CP) -This Okanagan Valley city wants tourists and vacationers who visit the area to pay a special tourist tax or toll similar to the fee paid by visitors to Canada's national parks. In a brief to a public meeting here on the future of the Okanagan, the city called for a long-range plan for the region which would largely preserve it as it now is. Fruit growing would be encouraged but the intrusion of large industries would be resisted. The brief said the concept of a recreational preserve embracing the whole Okanagan Valley - including Kelowna, Vernon and Osoyoos as ell as Penticton - would impose additional financial burdens on the tax base. Existing public facilities such as beaches and parks would require substantial subsidies. The brief said: "In order to provide funds for this purpose some form of special tax may be imposed and collected by the provincial government or regional district and paid to the municipalities where the facilities are provided." The brief said other methods of raising revenue required for maintenance of beaches or other facilities now operated by municipalities would be to lease the present public areas to private operators on a concession basis. These operators would charge admission and develop and improve the facilities. Paris to L.A. non-stop daily Air France non-stop flights between Paris and Los Angeles are now scheduled daily.
