  1. Fishtech, I read this report years ago. It was about retention fishing. killing ‘em and they are gone. What a concept. Don
  2. Folks, Contrary to what Border Paving executive told us at the first public meeting, they wish to expand their gravel extraction below the water table according to ACA mouthpiece, Let’s Go Outdoors. A public meeting hosted by Border Paving will make a presentation at the Butte Community Hall November 28/19 5>8 pm. Below is what arrived via the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers From Let's Go Outdoors: Breaking story: Millions of conservation dollars and countless hours of work to improve stream bank and fish habitat along the North Raven River could go out the window. Border Paving Ltd is proposing changes to their operation permit seeking to mine gravel below the water line. Why is this significant? The North Raven River is a spring fed river, it's soul source of water is provided by underground aquifers. The request by Border Paving to mine below the water line could have a significant impact on the under-ground water way, potentially cutting off the water source that provides the water to the river. Open House Border Paving will be hosting an open house Thursday November 28 at the Butte Hall from 5 to 8pm. If you are concerned about this proposal and the threat it poses to one of the top Brown Trout rivers in Alberta, I would encourage you to attend.
  3. I get a real kick outta these type of articles. Rather than deal with the much larger issues, these articles go back to blaming the angler.When are Anglers going to get their head around the big items. - habitat loss - silt, dams, roads, cows etc. -invasive species like carp - disease - WD and the like. All of the above are the result of our actions. Mind you, none of them buy a license. Don
  4. Dan, try Calgary Tent aind Awning at http://www.calgarytent.com/ they may be able to supply glue. Don
  5. Some years ago on CBC I learned that damsels have two colours which can be either male or female. The researcher believed it was a defensive move to confuse predators. Females are better groceries due to egg mass. Don
  6. Monger, lib that case, there are a lot of gay ones particularly in southern Alberta. Don
  7. Dan, ive seen the same thing. Lots of colours but mostly on the light green colour. I wonder if it related to the adults. There are dark olive and bright blue. They seem to be of either sex if using “who is on top” criteria. Don
  8. Jauhad, Rain getting to you. An argument with yourself is kinda scary Don
  9. Uber, it appears the correction maybe different than link originally posted. Spent the last hour looking for the original link. No luck. Don
  10. I drifted several sections of the Clearwater this year and you don’t want to bring s drift boat down it from Highway 22>Highway 752. It is thin in many places. I bottomed out my pontoon boat many times. Tbe river is in runoff right now and this will help the situation. Launching a drift boat is tough. There maybe only two spots in 12 miles. North Sask is even tougher to get boats in and out within a reasonable distance. Downstream of Highway 11 there is a take out at Drayton. Catch ya’ Don
  11. Folks, here is a Conference Board of Canada survey on hunting , fishing & trapping. this stuff is important. only what is measured matters. https://na1se.voxco.com/SE/default.aspx Don
  12. Folks, The Wild Alberta website used to have a link to Fisheries Management that detailed the Quality Lake Policy, the Perch Policy And Stocking Policy. They have disappeared. Are the policies still in place? i am looking for where they went. Don
  13. I’ve seen the missing gill plates on Staffer for well over 20 years. WD kills <10” fish. Don
  14. FishnChips says “ I have a Hardy JET 9WT that I collected a few years ago. The glass blanks are identical in colour to fibreglass Hardy Mooching Rods which were popular in the '70s on the BC coast.” The rod blank was made by J. Kennedy Fisher who built blanks for Winston & Hardy as well as a number of smaller companies. I have owned a number of blanks built by them. Wonderful rods. Don
