  1. Folks, Many will recall one of the Beaver Lake Regulars who seemed to be able to catch fish when many couldn't. That will happen no more. Elvin, a friend for 40 years, passed on March 10/21. In addition, Elvin was a fine guitar picker and song writer. As far as I know he only produced one disc "Dreamland" however several of his songs are available on Soundcloud using the search string "Elvin Berthiaume". He had for many years provided backup to some of western Canada's best singers.

  4. Managed poorly is hardly covering it. No effort to limit spread of disease in Alberta.
  5. And the ugliest part. WD infestation can be laid at the feet of Govt,, Guiding industry and anglers should took no effort to keep it outta Canada. This type of stupidity will destroy Alberta. Don

  7. Folks, The County of Clearwater lies between a 1.1 Million to the SE, 1.1 Million to the NE and another 300,000 down the middle. on some weekends it sees an increase of 30,000 persons. This year the body count has increased a lot so the Clearwater County is looking for some help. In that regard it is conducting a survey found here: http://www.clearwatercounty.ca/p/west-country-recreation-survey Please take the time to assist. regards, Don
  8. Hi Don, Ive heard a rumour that the powers that be may be allowing retention on Beaver Lake in the future. I kind of dismissed the rumour as nonsense but I did the same when I first heard about the whole aeration fiasco a couple years back. You hear anything?

      just sent an email to Govt asking them about the rumour. 
      I suspect the rumour was the result of Ray Macawicki (sp) push to increase killing.

      He is a retired F&W biologist and past president of F&G Assoc.



  9. 1) the number of doctors in rural areas is decreasing. We will lose our family dic. . So, folks, you better not get injured in our area. Things are stretched already. 2) the UPC Govt is giving 5 major gas/oil companies a large take break at the expense of the rural municipalities thereby reducing the amount companies are charged. In the Clearwater County case, this will result in a 22>27% reduction which translates to a mill rate increase of <>250%. so, roads that used to gravelled and graded will suffer, Search and Rescue may disappear and on and on. not sure how it wi

  11. So where did the Railroad originate that follows Gold Creek? Or did I imagine it. Don
  12. Grassy Mountain was an underground mine for many years. It had its own town called Lille. Both are gone now. Grassy Mtn. history is mirrored by the open pit mine NW of Sparwood which was an underground operation supporting The towns of Michel and Natal. History is important - let’s get it right. Don
  13. Trailhead, Your observation may have been true once but the rules changed shorting timelines and information gathering required for decisions. Don
