Fishing For Days!

Justin Hallee Hour 2

Summer Facts

On August 16th, 2015 me and my family went fishing in Canada for 3 days. We went fishing in Green Lake, and stayed at Cedar Point Lodge, right on the water. We went fishing for northern and walleye, and brought 16 northern over the border. My family and I had gone before, but this time was special because we had my grandparents come along. It was a tight drive with them, so we had to borrow our friends luggage carrier which we put on the top of the car. My grandparents had gone fishing in Canada before, but not for many years. They have always been talking about how fun it would be to go there, so we brought them. It took us 11 hours for us to drive to Ontario, but it was worth it.

The Science of It...

The Water Cycle

Where me and my grandparents went fishing, we fished in a huge lake. The reason that the lake doesn't just dry up is because of the water cycle. Water evaporates, forms clouds, rains, and then runoff leads into the lake. This makes it so that even if some of the lake evaporates, eventually it will rain and it will refill.


This connects to science because fish are part of biology. Fish are kind of like people, and reproduce and die. There are always around the same amount of fish, because by the time they die they've had a lot more fish. When fishing, it interrupts this process and sometimes some types of fish can't reproduce as fast as they are killed, and there are slowly less and less fish.

I Wonder...

Are the fish where I fished slowly depleting numbers?

Is the lake that I fished in being polluted in any way?

Have humans greatly affected the habitat of the lake I fished in?

Is the lake that I fished in shrinking, growing, or staying as it is?
