  1. Unfortunately the Covid pandemic has made it impossible for us to hold our annual dinner/auction as originally scheduled on November 7th thIs year. However, there is still a chance for you to become the proud owner of a 7’ 6″ 3/4 weight cane rod with two tips, built on a Payne 98 taper, retailing at $1,350, built and donated by internationally known rod maker, Don Andersen, http://bamboorods.ca/ . The draw will be held at 7:30pm on Nov 7th at the planned location for our dinner/auction, front door, Kenilworth Community Hall. You don't need to be there to collect your prize if you're the luc
  2. Aerators are now running at Hasse. ACA decided to add two to the 5 we provided (although one of these is awaiting a new part). Working well so far. If anyone is in the area over the winter please drive in and let me know(Treasurer@nlft.org) if all are running ok. ACA will check periodically but the quicker any breakdown is reported the easier it is to get it fixed. Water quality is good. Hopefully this will be a good rainbow/tiger trout fishery next Spring!
  3. Not familiar with Elite Series hooks. Anyone tried them out - reviews?

  5. HASSE LAKE Fortis has now extended power to lakeside and final wiring of the aeration system should be completed in the next two weeks.

Spring planted trout have grown rapidly. Further stocking will occur May 2021. Should be a good fishery next year!

  8. Lil Johns Sign Shop can't give me a specific time yet but will post it as soon as I know. Making the two new pedestals to match the existing ones is a complicating factor. Also not sure yet about a ceremony - different work schedules for the families and some health concerns about group gatherings may complicate it
  9. The graphics and art work for the Muir Lake Alberta Angler Walk of Fame have been completed with the voluntary assistance of ACA and the signs are now at Lil Johns Sign Shop awaiting construction and installation. We have reworked the signs for Lloyd Shea and Martin Paetz, added Barry Michell to the sign honouring his parents, George and Joan Michell, and created signs for Don Andersen and for the Edmonton Trout Club nominee, Reg Denny. Family members of the honourees have been involved in the wording and picture selection where possible. The new Welcome sign is also attached Mu

  12. 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 wor
