GEORGINA ISLAND, Ontario — Wild rice has been extinct in Lake Simcoe since the 1930s. The Aurora Bassmasters have re-introduced the native plant to the fishery in order to provide good fry habitat. "The club partnered with several key stakeholders to undertake this project in 2012," explained Wil Wegman of the Aurora Bassmasters.
