Trout Lake, ON - Meredith Brown
My name is Meredith Brown. I come from North Bay Ontario. I grew up on Trout Lake which is situated in North Bay. Trout Lake drains into the Mattawa River and the Mattawa River drains into the Ottawa River, so I was born in the watershed that I am protecting.
Trout Lake is such a big part of me because I grew up living the swim drink fish dream where the day that school was out my mother packed her 7 kids into the station wagon and we went and we lived on Trout Lake for the whole summer, didn’t get in a car we spent the whole summer swimming and fishing and paddling and it was phenomenal.
