20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 17, 1970 Saskatchewan Northland Where The Fishing Action Is! Saskatchewan is one provinc where the fishing is just it way the tourist brochures de scribe it. It sounds exagger aled and it is! Thirty poun lake trout, 25 Ib. northern piki 16 !b. rainbow trout, walley from five to eight pounds you'll not only catch them you'll get tired just haulin them into the boatl The province's northland where the action is. From th 53 degree parallel on upwarc there isn't a lake that doesn' offer some of the best fresh water fishing in the world. Ath abasca, Deschambault, Lac L Ronge, Dore, Reindeer, these are just a few of the 100, 000 lakes and rivers you have to choose from. Good all-weath er roads win take you to many of the best; others you reach by airplane. Either way, it's worth the trip as thousands o North American anglers will testify. PIKE, PICKEREL ABUNDANT For pike, you can cast your line almost anywhere and hook a lunker. This spectacular fight- er is found in lakes and streams from one end of the province to the other. Some fishermen, however, swear by the big waters along the eastern Han- son Lake Road-Pelican Nar- rows, Dupuis, Jan, Descham- bault, while others call the Churchill Biver system pike paradise. Average size of this voracious fighter varies from lake to lake with 20 to 30 pounders not un- common in northern fly-in lakes. Last year's champion pike in the Saskatchewan Ang- lers Derby was a 32-lb. 8-oz. qjecimen landed from the Gei- kie River. For walleye, you have just as much scope. Four out of five of the waters you'll hit will yield strings of these golden- hued favorites. Green Lake, which is easily accessible to motoring fishermen, is one ex- cellent source of this famed table delicacy even in the hot mid-summer months when they head down deep. Another lake famous for walleye is Lloyd Lake in the far north. GRAYLING IN NORTH The prized Arctic grayling are found only in the cold, un- disturbed waters of the far north. A spirited acrobat, the grayling makes a superb sports fish. Dry files are the most pop- ular lure used and early fall is considered the best fishing sea- son. The rapids of streams along the Fond du Lac, Black Birch, Cree and Heindeer riv- ers are among the favorite haunts. Trophy-sized lake trout also prefer the cold, clear waters of ihe far north although Little Sear Lake, Kingsmere and Lac La Ronge, farther south, are rated as prime trout areas. To- ward mid-summer, trout go down deep and trolling for this coveted prize is a thrilling challenge. In the spring and 'all, light casting or spinning ackle is sufficient when the rout is in shallower waters. Twenty and thirty pound catches are not uncommon and he provincial record is a 51 Ib. 0 oz'er caught in Kingsmere jake. For even more angling var- ety, the fisherman can go after ainbow, brook and brown trout locked in several streams and akes along the lower Hanson Road. Rainbow as heavy s 10 to 16 pounds are caught 1 Piprell Lake each season: Catching trophy-sized fish is only part of the thrill of the orthland.

Romans who used to flock to nearby beaches by the hundreds of thousands for weekends am for July and August vacations are angry. And tourist organiza- tions with an eye to Italy's yearly take from foreign visitors are worried. Rome newspapers, campaign- ing for something to be done about it, 'put the blame on refuse from the Tiber River and oil spills from offshore tankers. Garbage from Rome and in- dustrial towns along the Tiber pours into the sea at Ostia in the centre of the 60-mil.e string of beadles close to Rome. The sands are smeared and the sea is thick with oil from tankers unloading off the fishing port of Fiuminicino, just north of Ostia on the Tyrrenian coast. The deep blue of the Mediter- ranean used to change to emer- ald green along the beaches and was considered ideal bathing Emigrant Fares Filipinos travelling as emi- grants to the United States or Canada may now take advan- tage of specially reduced air fares. Japan Air Lines has in- troduced new rates for persons flying with passports valid for emigration from Manila to points in North America. water. But the water now is the color of pea soup, and in many places just as thick. WONT BATHE "People just aren't going into the water this one Ostia beach attendant complained. "They'll sit on the sand in the sun, but they won't even let the kids go wading." Home is only spotlighting a more widespread problem. The beautiful Bay of Naples also is slowly becoming fouled by oil and garbage. The famous la- goon at Venice is being polluted by waste from the Port Margh- era industrial development on the nearby mainland. Newspapers have estimated that 70 per cent of Italy's miles of coastline are becoming polluted. But the 60 miles of Roman beaches from Santa Marinella to Anzio are hsted among the 13 per cent of the coastline that health authorities bave warned may be danger- ously polluted. Rome provincial health au- thorities said there was no sign yet of an increase in hepatitis x typhoid from the bathing. 3ut they advise caution. And many doctors have told their patients to stay out of the water. Legislation now before a Se- nate public works commission is aimed at doing something about he situation. However, it would ake years and vast expendi- ures to clean the beaches and do away with the sources of pol- ution. Following Beethoven Trail Takes 3 -Hour Bus Tour VIENNA (AP) People cele- brating Ludwig van Beethoven's 200th birthday are finding it takes a 314-hour bus tour to fol- low the Beethoven trail in Vi- enna. The reason: The composer changed his address 69 times in the 35 years he lived here. This Blue Danube city has an abun- dance of houses bearing plaques testifying that "Beethoven lived here." The city of Vienna arranged the bus tours to mark the bicen- tennial. Guides attended special classes conducted by a music historian. They must speak English or French as well as German. The bus tour, starting from City Hall Square at p.m. daily, costs 30 schillings Beethoven was 17 when he ar- rived from Germany for the first time in 1787. He wanted to study with Joseph Haydn, but did not stay with him, as Ms mother died and he had to re- turn home. He returned in 1792 and re- mained m Vienna until his death in 1827. order for memorable outdoor vacations. Resort facilities are scattered throughout this otherwise un- touched area.
