July 24, 2016 - By Linda Gast - Cormorants dive under the water to find food. They use their feet to give themselves momentum and some species of cormorant can dive to 145 feet below the water.
In China and other Asian countries, fisherman tie Cormorants to boats and use them to get fish out of the water. A knot is tied near the bird's throat so it cannot swallow big fish. There is a children's book, "Ping" about fishing and Cormorants. http://www.amazon.com/Story-About-Ping-Marjorie-Flack/dp/0140502416

Fall is a very pleasant time to kayak the lake. The days are warm and the wind is light. The only problem is the water is low and you really have to watch out for snags.
