  1. Last summer AEP Whirling Disease Program team undertook a comprehensive study to understand the impact of whirling disease in the Crowsnest River. A technical report and plain-language summary for this study are now available on the Government of Alberta Open Portal: · Technical Report: https://open.alberta.ca/publications/9781460148402 · Plain-Language Summary: https://open.alberta.ca/publications/9781460148419

  7. We had anglers out for 5 days last week, and a total of 180 fish were caught. 164 Arctic Grayling, 11 Mountain Whitefish, 3 Brook Trout, and 2 Northern Pike. The Upper Pembina has been closed to angling for 5 years, and the test angling will help determine the effectiveness of the closure.
  8. The Fisheries regulations survey is an opportunity for Albertans to share feedback on proposed updates to provincial legislation that oversees aspects of fish resource management, such as licensing and definitions of terms, such as aquatic invasive species and bait. https://www.alberta.ca/fisheries-regulations-survey.aspx
  9. We have the opportunity to assist AEP with angling on parts of the Upper Pembina system as part of assessment of the 5 year closure. There are many factors (weather, water level, availability of AEP staff), but tentative plans call for angling the first 2 weeks of August. Note: We must accompany an AEP biologist (meet at Edson or the site). We are NOT permitted to angle without the biologist present. Right now are looking for 1-2 people for August 5 and August 7; and 2-4 people for August 10-14. Gas cards are available to club members who participate. Please leave your name here, or send email to grayling@nlft.org
  10. I like the artwork on those flies!

  12. 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

    The zoom meeting ID is : 668 142 7482, and the password is 306090. This might work for you as well. https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6681427482 Zoom works on many devices: Computer, must have a headset or webcam in order to talk. Laptops usually have camera/speaker built in and that works too. iPhone / iPad / Android phone or tablet. IT's best to install free app "Zoom Cloud Meetings" You don't need to sign up or supply any personal information. you just need to enter the meeting number.
  14. Last week's Zoom meeting was quite successful. On April 29 at 7:00 pm we will have another check-in session where members can come and say hello and talk about fishing related things. We are working on a more formal program for Wednesday evenings in May. Zoom works on a desktop computer or laptop that has a microphone and speakers, Apple phones and ipads, Android phones and tablets. It is best to install the 'zoom cloud meetings' app, but you don't need to sign up or even supply email address to join the meetings. Please send an email to videomeeting@nlft.org, and we'll reply with the meeting ID and password.
  15. 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.

  16. I think we could give this a try. I'll set up something for next week.
  17. I'm going to start on some Dolly Llamas, as shown to the club on this video. You might look at our YouTube library for some other ideas
  18. Trout Unlimited Canada also received some funds from ACA for analysis/recommendations for Pinto Lake, and for some Bull Trout work in the Eastern Slopes.
  19. Trout Unlimited Canada (our parent organization) has issued some guidance with respect to COVID-19 health concerns.

    Trout Unlimited Canada (our parent organization) has issued some guidance with respect to COVID-19 health concerns. In the rapidly changing environment around COVID-19, TUC asks all chapters to suspend meetings, events and workdays for the next couple of months. We hope that by reducing potential for contracting the virus we can help protect the health and welfare of our volunteers and members while supporting the need to reduce strain on Canada’s health care system. We thank you for your understanding and patience. All Northern Lights chapter meetings and events in March and April will be canceled or postponed. Details about resumption of meetings will be posted on the website, on Facebook and on our forum.

    The Boat and Sportsman show closed on Thursday evening and will not be re-opening due to health concerns over Coronavirus.
  22. Given the current COVID-19 virus situation, we wanted to send out some info to ensure we have a successful event. We are going ahead with the event, and are asking anyone that may pose a risk to not come, otherwise, you are all very welcome and we look forward to seeing you! To determine if you are a risk to others PLEASE READ: These key points are taken from the Alberta Health link https://www.alberta.ca/coronavirus-info-for-albertans.aspx and some comments have been added, relevant to our situation: Risk: As of today, Albertans risk is low. 1. Have you traveled in the last 2 weeks? DO NOT COME if: a) IF you have been on/at: Grand Princess Cruise, Iran or China's Hubei province in the last 14 days, DO NOT COME (and according to Alberta Health, isolate yourself for two weeks, even if you are feeling well and call Health Link 811). b) IF you have travelled anywhere outside of Canada and experienced any of the following: you had contact with someone who was suspected or confirmed to have the novel coronavirus OR were in a health-care facility in an affected country OR have symptoms, such as cough or fever, then DO NOT COME. 2. If you MIGHT be ill from COVID-19 for any other reason: DO NOT COME (pretty simple-stay at home, and call 811). If you've been asked to self-isolate by Alberta Health, please follow their instructions, even if you have no symptoms. Assuming no one with those risk factors will be attending, then we'll focus on good hygiene: The main prevention is really all about good hygiene: (i.e: wash your hands upon arrival and at breaks, we'll have cleaning material at the tables)]. Please remember to cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze (and not with your hand) (after all, it is cold and flu season, and no one wants those bugs either). --
  23. Yes, Michigan and Montana both have programs to re-introduce grayling. We are organizing a formal discussion with the folks from Montana, and there have been some early talks about a Grayling symposium where Alberta/Michigan/Montana and others could be involved.
