While fishing on Powell Lake, Wayne and I had an amazing experience. We were trolling in First Narrows. Wayne was trying to get his line out. I looked up the lake and saw what looked like a bumpy log, but it was moving faster and in a different direction than the wind. So rather than finish putting out our lines, we went over to investigate. As we came near, we realized it was a black bear swimming for shore.
While we can't be sure, the trajectory he was on seemed to come from Goat Island. Following the angle back, the bear must have swum about a kilometre from shore to shore. What an amazing show of strength and determination. Now the big question, why? For that I do not have an answer. -- Margy
