  1. a buddy of mine built a cradle a couple of years ago and he closed off one end and jury rigged some handles on the other end, he said it works well.
  2. Ran into that a couple of summers ago at Picklejar. Some people are simply morons.
  3. Not much of a drift before you get to Harvie Passage
  4. Didn't close the parks down. You can go into the parks just can't use a motorized vehicle. Walk, hike or bike is fine.
  5. Nice, my tomatoes are about the same, I find that it is a bit early for squash. I usually put those seeds in pots at the end of April. Unless they are winter squash.
  6. Was by the Canadian Tire on Richmond Rd and they were selling licenses. This was last Tuesday Mar 31.
  7. I sent a letter to the (dis)Honorable Jason Nixon and got the standard form letter back that says nothing, in fact a friend got exactly the same letter the only change being the my name. Just full of political double talk and it is absolutely clear that those boneheads in charge at the Legislature have no work-life balance and that anything that isn't profitable is on the chopping block. Heaven help us all.
  8. That's a positive spin on the situation. Kind of countered by the "its all going to s*#t " mindset.
  9. There are some big rainbows, and right now the backswimmers are on.
  10. I spoke a few years ago with an old timer, I believe he passed away a few years ago. He told me that he would string a net across the creek to catch fish and leave it overnight, then haul in a load for the winter. This was in west central Alberta. Maybe that behaviour was passed down.
  11. Wasn't in Alta, I caught them in Baynes Lake BC, the day before I got creamed on my bicycle. Was going to go for cutthroat in either the Bull or the White River but couldn't do much with one arm.
  12. My season was mixed, got out to some foothills streams early but the water temps were so low that the fish were sluggish at best. Then hit the Oldman drainage and as per others was overwhelmed by the amount of anglers at all the tourist spots. But I did the hike to quiet waters and was rewarded by doing so, tried the Bow on a few occasions and had one fish to show for it. Then I was hit by a red SUV towing a motorboat by Kikomun while riding my bicycle and my left arm got torn in half at the elbow so I had to heal up. I am right handed so did manage to flail away on some foothills streams in the past couple of weeks and dredge up a few fish to end the year. Was planning on fishing the White or the Bull but the accident kiboshed that, though the day before I managed to catch my first bass on a fly. So as I said mixed
  13. So I fish the Elbow and the population there has definitely changed; when I first fished it 25+ years ago there were fish rising everywhere and the sizes ranged from tiddlers to 20 inch fish. I caught mainly browns, but there were brookies, rainbows, bulls, whitefish, cutties and pike. Last fall I fished it and there were fish rising and I caught tiddlers and decent sized fish of around 15 inches mainly browns but some rainbows and whitefish. That being said the population numbers are down, the holding water is completely changed due to 2013, but I don't think the pressure is any higher. I rarely see any other anglers. Any thoughts and theories on this?
  14. With the Elbow the ring road construction is also a factor.
