Municipality of Trent Lakes
The Township Of Selwyn
Once again, I am pleased to represent this beautiful diverse municipality of Trent Lakes. We are constantly expanding our appeal to the traveller, whether it is a family resort, a local bed and breakfast, or pitching your tent on the shores of one of our lovely lakes. The revitalization of the locks and our new park have added a new dimension to downtown Buckhorn. The Greater Harvey Historical Society has a treasure of documents for those folks trying to trace their heritage. The Buckhorn District Tourist Association can supply the would-be vacationer with many reasons to come visit us, share a nice meal, or rest a few days. I always tell people who are visiting the lakes – look three times from the same vantage point each day for a week and you will never be far away from water again. We have many entrepreneurs who have moved to this welcoming community to start their business, or relocate their existing business. You would not be alone and the opportunities are endless. Medical centres, libraries, schools, and day care facilities are but a few of the services we have to offer. Check out our economic development and enjoy.
On behalf of the members of Council, staff and the residents of the Township of Selwyn, I would like to extend our warmest welcome and invite you to spend time discovering our beautiful community! Those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy nature, a leisurely stroll through shops or to admire heritage buildings will find lots to explore in Selwyn. The Township of Selwyn is located at the centre of the Kawartha Lakes region which has made it a popular destination for many recreational and cultural activities. As the largest Township in the County of Peterborough, our community offers a wonderful balance between urban and rural experiences and we are proud to say that in 2018, Maclean’s magazine listed Selwyn as the safest community in Ontario. During your visit, consider touring some of our local farms during a charming countryside drive or explore our stunning waterfront views along the historic Trent Severn Waterway. With wonderful cafes and restaurants, businesses and people – Selwyn has lots to offer you! Best wishes for an enjoyable vacation!

Our roots are steeped deep in history.
Buckhorn is a community that gives a respectful nod to the past, but also fully embraces new roads forward to expand its residency and the support of new business. John Hall, the first settler in this area, constructed a dam and sawmill here in 1830. He 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, gave rise to the name Buckhorn. It wasn’t until 1936 the hamlet became officially As the Member of Parliament for Peterborough-Kawartha, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Buckhorn area. There are so many great ways to spend your time in this special place. In the

Lock 31 on the Trent-Severn Waterway brings boaters into the heart of Buckhorn. In 2018, Lock 31 was the busiest along the system, welcoming 8,003 vessels throughout the season. In 1887, the lock was in operation, a little behind schedule due to the difficulties in both drilling through the pre-Cambrian granite of the Canadian Shield, and labour shortages in this part of the country at the time.
The lock and canal have undergone some rehab over the past few years, including masonry repair work and extensive infrastructure renovations. Lock 31 has a length of 31.4m (103 ft), is 9.7m (32 ft) wide and has a lift of 3.5m (11.5 ft). To accommodate more overnight guests, power posts were added to the lock area. Due to the popularity of the lock, however, mooring overnight is restricted to one night. The lock is a short walk to the hamlet of Buckhorn where boaters can find various facilities, including restaurants and shops. Every year at the end of August, the town celebrates the successful summer season with a community event, Rock the Locks. Vendors line the main street, music can be heard throughout the town and people stroll the area enjoying the festive atmosphere.

Canoeing and Kayaking
A leisurely paddle along the shorelines of our beautiful lakes and rivers can help you de-stress. Take time out as the sun rises or sets to see birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
With so much history above the water, there’s more to discover below it. Diving and snorkelling can give
you a new appreciation for what’s underwater. Basic snorkelling doesn’t require much equipment and can be done safely in shallow water with adult supervision. For those looking for a more intense experience, there are experts in neighbouring communities who can give you the training, certification and rental equipment for your adventure. Ask at the Welcome Centre for recommendations on sites you can’t miss.

Lots of Water Means Fishing!
By Rick Daniels
Photo Credit: Tracey Suba
Lakes in the Buckhorn area are full of fish – perch, bluegill, crappie, walleye, pickerel and large- and small-mouth bass. From the spring to late fall, you’ll find anglers on the water trying to catch their fill. 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. 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 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 the number one food source for Small Mouth Bass, if you’re catching perch, it’s usually not to 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.

KIDS FISHING DERBIES

The sport of ice fishing offers a much different experience. Once our lakes are frozen to the right thickness, you’ll see ice huts dotting the horizon. It’s important to check the fishing regulations at www. ontario.ca to make sure you are fishing in season and with the proper licences. From February 16 to 18, you can take advantage of Ontario’s Free Family Fishing Events throughout the region. There are a number of communities who host ice fishing events so you can try it out!

Whether it’s art for your home or cottage, or a night of entertainment, the Buckhorn area has a number of special events, galleries and tours that are sure to please. The Buckhorn Festival of the Arts, formerly known as the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival, takes place in August at Buckhorn’s Cultural Centre, the BCC. Artists from across Canada showcase their paintings, sculpture, jewellery and photography. There are activities for the children to give them an outlet for their creativity. Visit buckhornfineart.com for more information. Local galleries are the best way to spend a lazy Sunday. Exhibits feature works from
both emerging new talent to local artisans. Our galleries curate collections that are reflective of our community and the beauty of our landscape. Studio tours take place throughout the area, usually in the summer and fall. Many are self-guided tours where you can discover where and how our artists live and work. Some will let you in on their creative process and share their passion for their work. For theatre lovers, the Buckhorn Community Centre hosts a spring and fall dinner theatre production. The local acting troupe, the Hall’s Bridge Players, performs comedies to entertain the audiences who come from as far away as Orillia and Toronto. Tickets go on sale in March for the spring theatre and in September for the fall theatre. Visit buckhorncommunitycentre.com for

Globus Theatre at the Lakeview Arts Barn presents a packed summer season, including two Canadian premiere in 2019s. The all-Canadian 2019 Summer Season at The Lakeview Arts Barn is bookended by two world premieres by female playwrights. Rose Napoli’s ‘That’s Amore!’ is a Big Fat Italian Comedy where passion and pasta collide and we examine romance, traditions, expectations and love with much hilarity. Sarah Quick’s ‘Kama Sutra’ is based on the very funny one-act play by Peter McGarry, that examines the drastic changes that can happen in a marriage when the wrong book is accidentally borrowed from the library! Here’s the summer schedule for 2019: • June 19 to 29: That’s Amore by Rose Napoli • July 3 to 13: The Numbers Game by John Spurway • July 17 to 27: The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis Macauley Fishing Derby by Norm Foster • July 30 to August 10: Leisa Way Stars in Opry Gold • August 14 to 24: Kama Sutra by Sarah Quick

Everyone’s familiar with the town’s unofficial mascot, the iconic Buckhorn Buck. This statue was erected to commemorate the namesake of the town of Buckhorn. The area has a huge population of Whitetail Deer, making this a hunter’s paradise in the fall. No photo journal of your trip to our town would be complete without a selfie with the Buck!
