  9. Earlier
  10. On May 8 an online symposium was hosted by AEP on the topic of whirling disease. The session was held as a virtual meeting (zoom) and I saw up to about 180 concurrent partipants. Several presentations by given by various experts and researchers and I think the presentations were format were quite effective. The event was recorded and is available on YouTube. The situation is dire and many of our favorite trout streams will be severely impacted. There is some hope on the horizon as research continues and our provincial biologists share information with other jurisdictions who have dealt with this in the past. See this page for YouTube links to the individual sessions

  12. Hi Neal, Since my original post I have been told by a couple of "knowledgeable"? fishermen that some of the larger fish did winterkill at Dolberg this yr. Personally I am convinced that some of the big fish at Dolberg are missing, for whatever reason. jim
  13. Ahem, Jaymack, it looks like you. The lake very seldom winterkills so some of the 2017, 2018, 2019 stockings should still be there (and bigger). In May, 2020 4,000 Rainbows at 7" and 2,000 Browns at 8" were stocked. Cheers, Neil
  14. Is Dolberg lake really as bad as the couple of afternoons I've spent there this yr or is it just me?
  15. Important survey on native trout. Take a few minutes and fill it out. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/58TC3NN?fbclid=IwAR1_VVKqIje5b1TuRdCfebtIzjRF36zD0VxlVYoC52MSVoWCi6TOFxr5M8w "Alberta's native trout are a vital part of the Eastern Slopes ecosystem, but various threats have impacted their ability to thrive. The Native Trout Collaborative Communications project aims to increase awareness of Alberta's native trout, their habitats, and the threats they face while promoting conservation and recovery activities. Multiple organizations in Alberta are collaborating in this joint effort including Alberta Environment and Parks, Alberta Conservation Association, Cows & Fish, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society Southern Alberta Chapter, Trout Unlimited Canada, and Foothills Research Institute."
  16. Florin I'm good with Zoom and with Ken as the host of our meeting. I'm just getting used to Zoom as I'm sure others are and to make a switch for switching sake to me is not worthwhile. Having said that I'll go with the flow. Vince
  17. Not to make things too complicated, but I was thinking whether we could hang out and talk without one of us having to host the meeting. One way to do that is to create a virtual meeting room where anyone can join whenever they come (if too early, they will be alone for a while) and the meeting stays open until the last person leaves. If any of you are interested for next week, we could test drive Jitsi Meet. As far as I can see, it offers all the features of zoom and has more of a distributed hosting flavour, quite suitable for small meetings like ours. Here is the link, it should work in any up to date browser: https://meet.jit.si/virtualNLFTmay2020 Florin

  24. Received the following message today from Parkland County: "As of right now Muir Lake is scheduled to open as usual, however the situation is fluid and depending on usage and visitors’ ability to follow social distancing protocols, it could change. We will communicate any decisions that are made on the County website and social media pages." Suspect this will be the case with other lakes in Parkland and in other Counties. Please help spread the message so we don't have lakes and boat launches closed off to us all. The new Welcome to Muir Lake sign was installed this week and work on replacing and adding to the Alberta Angler Walk of Fame signs is in progress.
  25. I,m still trying Here is a new link to the information for the trout angler. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wouhhrzbskjn7of/An Index of Links to Trout Fishing Information for the Northern Alberta Angler - Copy - Copy - Copy - Copy.docx?dl=0
  26. I will schedule a Zoom meeting for Wednesday April 22 at 7:30pm. We'll update you on the status of club activities and some of the work that is still planned. Additionally, we will have a round table discussion where members can talk about fishing related things they've been doing since we started isolating.
