  1. I fish them spring & fall. Generally in the spring.I'll put a chironomid on the bottom fly[chromie 14],top fly ultimate bt man sz10.5-10'O FOW.iN THE FALL FLOATER TOP,SINKING BOTTOM
  2. Not a very good picture.How about a caddis,or possibly a flying ant.Nice to have a side view.Tent shaped wings,would lead me to a caddis. ??
  3. Insight into why Bullshead has not been restocked?

      Gonna head down this next week either way. It will be nice to just get out of the city and see some country. I will let you know how it goes. Do you fish anywhere else down there? I was talking to the biologist who stocks the lake and he told me that the fish in Police are an areal strain of rainbow that he gets from down in the states. He was glad to hear how much they jump and fight...

      Thanks. Are you affiliated with the Sam Livingston hatchery, or what is your position? I run an outdoor ed program and have been working with Ryan Lyster for a few years now and the kids and I help with the stocking programs he runs, and Ravens, for the lakes and ponds west of Calgary. 

      Do you know anything about Fiesta? or Beaverdam lake? Fiesta is close to home, but I am looking to fins some decent sized Brook trout and I think Ryan was telling me about the Beaverdam, but not sure.

      Was at Police Wednesday and had a pretty good day. That lake has some really nice fish in there. My biggest was just a hair under 25 inches... 

  5. Logging in..They sure ask,some very delicate identity questions.For a free test..Not for me,this test...I do agree with the need for new fisher's,to be able to identify fish.Fishing ediquitte.etc.
  6. WELL AFTER WATCHING THAT VIDEO.PRETTY OBVIOUS TO ME.ALL WILD FISH ,IN FLOWING WATERS .MUST BE RELEASED.NATURAL REPRO.,IS THE BEST.
  7. We have too many invasive species.Starlings,English Sparrows.Probably the worst are gray & black tree rats.They eat the eggs & young of song birds.
  8. Mami/Payne Hatchery should be up & running.Lotsa areas for camping,shore access north side.Never winter kills .So always a chance for Walter.
  9. FSA13 DID THESE UP FOR US.GREAT JOB. THANKS
  10. Guys i don't fish rivers anymore.Medical issues. But a couple of things come to mind.As a participant ,in the expired Rnd.Tbl for fisheries[5 yrs].These situations of fishing pressure,seasons,population[interest]explosion.These were all present & brought to the attention of fisheries back then.So changes that i have seen .Commercial fisheries in the province was shut down.But when i flip over to the AO brd.I see /hear the belly aching .That its still hard to catch limits of whitefish & is getting harder.No brainer here: These fish are heavily targeted,in the fall early winter.When the fish are spawning.Crawling Valley walleye,are still C&R. SO WHY; Catch limits have never decreased ,in fact .They in some cases ,gotten worse imo. 10 Fish limits,5 fish limits have got to go.Poaching on Crawling Valley must still be going on,or is it POOR fish release handling.Licenceing has to change.1 licence cannot be used as a fill the freezer. If i may..Valid lic.holder,goes fishing with a couple of kids or seniors,that don't have to have a lic.But because that 1 lic is present they can all keep what that lic. holder is allowed in the daily possesion.Fish ID; Is another serious concern.Slap your money down at CT,or on line.In some peoples minds if they catch it,it is supper...Gotta change..Or keep paying to rebuild hatcheries to restock our wild stocks My apologises..TIGHT LINES IN 2020 Do the survey.Mentioned in GD,on this board
  11. YEARS AGO THERE WAS A SLOGAN.i THINK IT CAME FROM " BUCK FOR WILDLIFE" LIMIT YOUR CATCH,INSTEAD OF CATCHING YOUR LIMIT....PERHAPS THIS MIGHT WORK WITH PICTURE TAKING.YOU DON'T NEED A PICTURE OF EVERY FISH THANKS MONGER
  12. Hi Brian,

    Just wondering if you learned anything valuable at the fisheries meeting last night?

    I was wondering if they talked about limiting angling in any way along the Bow?

    Cheers, Rob Hampton
