Check out area lakes and parks

Any drive, especially through Oakland County will result in area lakes being without much activity on them.
This time of the year, with so much to do-small game hunting, bow hunting-many sports-minded folks are in the field or woods.
It's a good time to fish, take that hike you've been putting off or go for a bike ride on one of the many mountain bike trails.
If you decided to go into the woods wear something with orange to distinguish you from game. Even though deer firearm season is some time off, be on the safe side.
You hunters should be absolutely sure of your shot before taking it. Know that it is in fact game and know what is beyond the area you intend to shoot at.
And don't leave those northern rivers like the AuSable or Manistee off your to do list. There's still trout in them that need something to eat and will chase any variety of wet flies.
This is a good time to throw those woolly buggers you've been saving up.
The Huron-Clinton Metro Parks and the Oakland County Park system have plenty of hiking opportunity close by.
Take advantage of the nice fall days and get outside.


  1. Also don't forget your camera for the fall colors.

  2. This is a perfect time to check out a Oakland County Oak Park. The fall colors, still ponds and peace and quite are what all of us need once in awhile to calm our stress.
