  1. Your welcome..I thought it was interesting,the Whirling Disease work.Being done for Parks Canada.For guys wanting multi species .in stillwaters.The difference in fishing for Browns,in stillwater.Where to put your offerings for catching Tigers.Blood Indian update.Total upgrades on all of our hatcheries.Replenishing Bull trout,through a quarantine trailer.So as not to contaminate our hatcheries..Yes it's a long vid.That's why i highlighted some of it...
  2. https://albertaregulations.ca/ Quick note Police changes Yes it's 3 fish BUT only 1 over 50 cm Please read them
  3. This is 2 years ago So what have they done SFA Just allowed the buggers to invade,nearly all waters south of Edmonton https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=fly+fish+food
  4. The 2 lakes in harvest hills,have thousands.They aerate the lakes.Why can't F&W force them to shut the aerators down.Hopefully there by killing,them.in the winter.They're storm water lakes that eventually sees the .The over flow making it's way into the Bow River.
  5. The Alberta Conservation Association (ACA) would like to increase the opportunity for kids to use flies as another alternative to worms and power bait at its ‘Kids Can Catch’ events throughout the province. We offered to help them out and some of us are sorting through our fly boxes or tying a few extra to donate flies that would work well in a lake under a bobber using a spinning rod. We’re aiming for 500 but would like to make the number much higher to help ACA keep this going for a few years. We're hoping some AO members might be interested in helping out. Suggested patterns include small w
  6. 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
  7. 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. ??
  8. Top of the hill ,there is a gate.So no access from there with a vechile.Today's satelite view shows that it's still ice covered

      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... 

  9. 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.
  10. WELL AFTER WATCHING THAT VIDEO.PRETTY OBVIOUS TO ME.ALL WILD FISH ,IN FLOWING WATERS .MUST BE RELEASED.NATURAL REPRO.,IS THE BEST.
  11. 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.
  12. Mami/Payne Hatchery should be up & running.Lotsa areas for camping,shore access north side.Never winter kills .So always a chance for Walter.
  13. FSA13 DID THESE UP FOR US.GREAT JOB. THANKS
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Been to many of these Bow Habitat .Was just a lecture on what they're going to do.Left no time for discussion ,on possible resolves.Also was part of Rnd.Tbl.MTGS for4 yrs spring/fall mtgs..Got to be just a waste of my time & expense to go to Edmonton .To hear what they're going to do.They abrutly shut things down.
  17. One of the biggest embarassments for me.Is there lack luster attack,on areas that .Have been identified as having Prussian Carp,in there water impoundments.Ie City of Calgary,Harvest Hills storm water ponds,Airdrie Nose creek & on & on .Just about every watershed south of Calgary,that gets there water from the Bow river watershed.
  18. Thanks for posting..It does present an issue.That i have had ,for years.That being ice fishing,at a C&R lake.The fish,generally is caught.Dragged up onto the ice.Pictures taken[guessing].Then kicked down the hole.The article speaks to handling & the loss of the protective slime.Well i am only surmising that the cold exposure,would definitely effect that slime.Being that it might very well be frozen.Gone is the gentle release,allowing for the fish to recoup.Just dropped into the hole. Shame to see this happening & not just on our trout lakes.What about Walleye,Pike etc.
