The Nogies Creek watershed, stretching from Bass Lake to Pigeon Lake, and to north Pigeon Lake encompassing Big (Boyd/Chiminis) Island, is a significant natural area boasting interesting natural features, and unique geology, physiography, fisheries and wildlife.
As a result of a partnership between Kawartha Conservation, and a number of local agencies, associations, residents, Fleming College, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, the Municipality of Trent Lakes, Trent University, and the Kawartha Land Trust, a concept has been developed for the area to create the ‘Nogies Creek Waterway’. The concept positions the Waterway to be profiled and utilized as a destination for recreational, cultural, educational, and scientific activities.
A Profile Plan is being developed for the area, and is anticipated to include a canoe route, self-guided nature trails for hiking, opportunities for scientific study, an existing fish sanctuary and opportunities for fisheries research, as well as a recreational linkage with Big (Boyd/Chiminis) Island on north Pigeon Lake.
The implementation of the Waterway will respect landowner rights, privacy, and interests while at the same time encouraging increased tourism and use of the Area.
