and many First Nations members live in the community year-round or seasonally on some of the islands in Lovesick Lake.
Buckhorn, or Hall’s Bridge as it was known, was already a busy milling community by the latter part of the nineteenth century. John Hall emigrated from Ireland to the U.S. in 1810, later moving to Peterborough. In 1828 he purchased property on both sides of the rapids on what became Buckhorn Lake in Harvey Township and over the next four years constructed a dam and mill complex. When the lumber markets and the forests began to fade, so did many of the settlements. French Canadians, Irish immigrants and other lumber labourers pulled out to try their hand at work to support their families elsewhere. The area is rich in early First Nations sites, As the Member of Parliament for Peterborough—Kawartha, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Buckhorn area.

DID YOU KNOW • Lumbering was a chief export industry with a number of mills built in the area producing squared timbers, ship’s masts, shingles, barrels, etc. These products were transported via the inland waterways to Quebec for shipment to Great Britain and Europe. A large portion was also shipped down the Erie Canal (opened in 1825) to New York. • John Hall became the first postmaster, and for matters of the Royal Mail, the settlement was named “Hall’s Bridge”. However, John Hall’s collection of deer antlers, which he displayed on the outside walls of his mills, which gave rise to the name Buckhorn. It wasn’t until 1936 the hamlet became officially recognized as by its present name. • John Hall died in1883 at the age of 96 years, but not before he gave every female in Hall’s Bridge (Buckhorn) a plot of land to build a home in order to encourage the continuing growth of the hamlet.
This is a special place, with so many great reasons to visit all year round. You can spend a summer day winding your way through the Trent-Severn Waterway, embrace winter by exploring the backcountry on foot or on skis, or relax by watching that perfect sunset on one of our many lakes, no matter the season. Whether you spend your days checking out one of our many community festivals, reeling in the catch of the day fishing, or finding that special souvenir at a local business, there is so much to see and do. Stay a while and you’ll come to love the people and these places as I have. Thanks for visiting Buckhorn - come back soon. Maryam Monsef, P.C., M.P. Peterborough—Kawartha

Lock 31 is 31.4 metres (103 feet) long by 9.7 metres (32 feet) wide. The first lock let out to tender in September 1882, Lock 31 was refurbished in 2017 as was the structure under the County Road 23 bridge over the lock. Just a short walk to the hamlet of Buckhorn with restaurants and shopping, boaters are only allowed to moor for one night, because Lock 31 is the second busiest lock on the system. This part of the canal also features special docks for smaller watercraft including canoes and jet skis. Please be considerate of these smaller vessels. Every year, the hamlet of Buckhorn celebrates its connection to the Trent-Severn Waterway with “Rock the Locks”, an event for the whole family. Vendors, exhibits and activities line Main Street as visitors stroll along the canal. Organized by the Buckhorn Community Centre, this event has become popular with tourists as the wind-down to summer. Phone: (705) 657-8725 GPS Coordinates: 44 33’20.10”N 78 20’45.85”W

Lots of Water Means Fishing!
By Rick Daniels
Photo Credit: Jane Clark
Whether you are a resident occasional angler or on vacation for a few weeks, it’s nice to have a few handy tips to make your fishing experience a little more fruitful. It’s impossible to cover every technique and variable but here are a few suggestions to make your fishing day more productive. Fish do not always do what they’re supposed to or bite when they should. The following is their usual behavior. In the spring, fish are still hanging around shallow spawning beds eating other species’ small fry. As the days get warmer in summer, the fish start heading into deeper, cooler, oxygen-rich water – especially in shallower lakes. As we move into the fall and the weeds start dying off, fish tend to look for green oxygenating weeds. Even in the spring or summer, if you run into a large swath of dead weeds, move on. Which brings us to another point as another guide said to me; “You know – fish swim.” If you’re fishing from a boat or even from shore, don’t 16 Explore Buckhorn & Area 2018
stay in the same place all day, even if you had great luck the day before. I have approximately 25 “fishing holes” I frequent with my clients and with no rhyme or reason, the spot that was DEAD for days will start producing or vice versa. I find if you’re not sure where the fish are, it’s best to drift over large areas. It won’t be long until you discover a pattern forming of the preferred depth and structure of the day. There are certain species that are noted for hanging around certain areas. Perch seem to like to rock shoals and drop offs. Since perch seem to be the number one food source for Small Mouth Bass, if you’re catching perch, it’s usually not too long after that you start catching smallies. Large Mouth Bass seem to like weedy, stumpy back bays and shallows near cover like overhanging trees or under docks or piers. Walleye, during the summer, like to bury themselves in deep thick weed beds. There are plenty of more fishing tips on my web site. Happy Fishing!

Perch, bluegill and crappie are the species you will be fishing for and there are lots of each species in our lakes to keep you busy. Be sure to check to ensure the ice is safe for walking on before you venture out. Also, check the fishing regulations at www.ontario.ca to make sure you are fishing in season and with the proper licences.

If you’re looking for a golf course, the Buckhorn area has several world-class facilities, designed to take advantage of the natural landscape. Whether you want a leisurely 9-hole course or a more challenging 18-hole experience, you’ll find it here in Buckhorn.
For those who want a winter outdoor adventure, come see us when Mother Nature puts down her blanket of white. Kilometres of snowmobile trails, year-round accommodation and activities for the whole family await.
Getting outdoors has never been this much fun! With an adventurous spirit, a good sense of direction and a GPS device, you can hunt for treasures all through the Buckhorn area. Most caches don’t contain valuables – just a log book and some small trinkets for you to take. Replace what you take to be left behind for the next geocacher. Some are simple to find; others are a more rigorous test of your orienteering skills; others might require you to puzzle out an answer to get to the log book. Check out geocaching.com for more information. Photo Credit: Wendy Bertrand 18 Explore Buckhorn & Area 2018

We are blessed here in the Buckhorn area to have one of the darkest night skies in the Kawarthas. Whether you know your way around the constellations or just want to count meteors during one of the annual showers, just lie back on the dock or in your favourite lawnchair and admire Mother Nature’s lights. You can also check to see if there will be the Northern Lights at www.aurora-service.org/aurora-forecast/. The Peterborough Astronomical Association also holds regular events on Armour Hill in Peterborough to show you “what’s up”. Visit www.peterboroughastronomy.com for more information.

The Buckhorn area is home to hundreds of species of birds. Drew Monkman of Peterborough is a nature author who’s been birdwatching for a number of years. He says there’s a good chance you’ll see a new species of bird to add to your list. Because the land is so varied in the Buckhorn area, there are a number of natural habitats that attract dozens of species. Wetlands and highlands, woodlands and open field are our feathered friends call home. Birdwatching is a relaxing pastime and relatively inexpensive. Just some good shoes or wellies, warm clothes and a set of binoculars can set you off on an adventure.

The Buckhorn area serves up some of the best food in the Kawarthas. From informal pub fare and pizza to finer dining at our area resorts, you can find something to tempt your tastebuds.
If cooking at the cottage or at the campground is more your thing, make sure to visit our local farmers’ markets and farmgates. Nothing tastes better than the freshpicked produce, homegrown beef or fresh-caught fish. Even when you dine out in the Buckhorn area, you’ll find hints of our heritage. The Cody Inn, known for its delicious Chinese food has a history. The original house was
32 Explore Buckhorn & Area 2018
built in 1905 as a private residence and in 1921, was converted into a hotel named The Windsor House. It became well-known as a luxurious fishing lodge and folks from as far away as the States came to stay. During one of Cody Inn’s several transitions, the signatures of several guests were found on the original brickwork. They can still be seen today. Rumour has it that Colonel Harlan Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken used to frequent The Windsor House for his vacations. In 1975, the lodge was purchased by Francis Cody, who renamed it Cody Inn which it remains today. In 2000 the Inn was turned into a restaurant and today, owners Richard Lam and Ken Young offer some of the best Chinese food in the Kawarthas!

Welcome to the Buckhorn area.
You are entering a beautiful world, where the stress of the big city falls away and Mother Nature lets you into her home.
Buckhorn is located 90 minutes north-east of Toronto and is only 120 minutes west of Ottawa. One of the many fantastic characteristics of Buckhorn is that it is positioned along the southern tip of the beautiful Canadian Shield and is part of the famous Trent Severn waterway. With Buckhorns location being so close to Toronto and Ottawa, and being in the stunning terrain of the Canadian Shield, Buckhorn is a popular choice for both Canadian and America families that are looking for the perfect Ontario get-away. Buckhorn and the surrounding area offer visitors and residents a fantastic year round lifestyle. In the spring, summer and fall months popular activities are waterskiing, competition fishing, hiking, golfing, long distance cycling, hunting, boating, canoeing and kayaking (to just mention a few!). In the winter months our area offers excellent snowmobiling, ice fishing, Alpine and Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. It doesnâ€™t matter if your reason for visiting us is for a wedding, to invest in a northern family cottage, to permanently relocate or just go to an all-inclusive resort for a weekend getaway, Buckhorn and our surrounding area has what you are looking for.
