"The Kawartha Lakes (Otonabee River): (The Otonabee River, flowing thru') Peterboro is the eastern gateway to the beautiful Kawartha Lake district -- a chain of fourteen lakes that constitute one of the most popular of Ontario's summer playgrounds. The region, enjoying very agreeable climatic conditions, affords almost unlimited oppurtunities for sailing, canoeing, yachting and motor-boating, and is particularly attractive to the fisherman, especially for small-mouth bass and maskinonge -- which are caught in the larger lakes -- while there is good fishing for speckled trout in some of the smaller lakes. Bobcaygeon, at the central part of the region, reached direct from Toronto, is another very popular point."
