Jumping Caribou Lake
Jumping Caribou Lake is located within the
Municipality of Temagami, in the Nipissing District, Ontario, Canada. Ojibwa
natives of the area have given the lake its name.
Jumping Caribou Lake played an important role
in the logging industry from the early 1900's until the late 1920's. The first
cabins on the lake were located on Byers Bay off the Old Ferguson Highway (now
realigned and part of Highway 11) and were part of a logging camp. In 1934,
Herman Watson Osborn bought the old logging camp and transformed it into the
first private camp on the lake. Osborn was instrumental in getting Warner
Brothers to film Captains of the Clouds (starring James Cagney, Brenda
Marshall, Dennis Morgan and Alan Hale, Sr.) on Jumping Caribou Lake.
Of the original logging cabins on Jumping
Caribou Lake, only one is still in use today. At present, there are 31 private
camps and 1 commercial camp on the lake. Fish in the lake include Walleye,
Northern Pike, Smallmouth bass and Lake trout.
