  2. Hi Russell, some of us do indeed fish for grayling in the Athabasca drainage. A research project was proposed for next year, and if successful some of our members will be helping collect data and DNA to help confirm if there are significant genetic differences in grayling in various parts of the province. We'll know if this gets approved in the spring timeframe. We had a great experience with an oil company a few years ago as well. Here is a short writeup. ken
  3. Gentleman: The Pembina study is a most excellent. Are there any folks on this forum who fish grayling, and study their activities in the upper reaches of the Athabasca drainage? If you do, it is amazing How and Where these fish live and hide. I refer to these grayling as "backwoods" graying. What I do not like is the poaching of these fish. My scale samples show these boreal graying do not age much faster than an Athabow. No academic paper to support my assertion. Suggestion: I believe we should start assessing the population of our Boreal grayling population in a systematic manner. I notice some folks on this forum possess sampling kits. And know how to use them. Excellent. Also: A commendation to the oil companies who work in the Boreal grayling areas. I was fuming Suzuki mad when a pipeline leaked into one of my favorite graying pools and riffles. I observed the engineering professionalism of the water clean up crew as they handled the leak, and restored my little fishery back to normal. Proof that Suzuki sucks. Thank you for reading my rant.

  6. Stauffer 2021.docStauffer Redds 2021.docxx Even though we put up a plaque in the Muir Lake Alberta Angler Walk of Fame honouring Don Andersen for his many contributions over the years to recreational angling in Alberta, he won't quit doing more! Equipped with a new knee he has walked the creek again this year counting spawning redds to compare with similar counts he's conducted for many years. See his report above. And, by the way, Don has donated a new 7'6" 4/5 Wt bamboo fly rod for us to raffle in support of our conservation projects. For more info check out https://www.nlft.org/2021/10/30/cane-rod-raffle-6/
  7. We have one more formal meeting on Wednesday Dec. 1. Sarah Marshall from the Athabasca Watershed Council will be talking to us about their organization and issues facing the Athabasca drainage. https://awc-wpac.ca/ Information on how to join our Zoom meetings is at http://www.nlft.org/Zoom Everyone is welcome to attend. We will have the Tie and Talk meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays, with a possible special event on Dec. 15.
  8. In our November newsletter we missed highlighting the link to buy tickets. In the first sentence the words "purchasing tickets" is a link to our Square site where tickets can be bought.
  9. The folks at Queen Mary Park community league asked us to pass along a request for volunteers to work at a casino at West Edmonton Mall on Dec 13/14. This is not a Northern Lights event, but they've been kind to our club (especially during Covid) and could use some help. If you can help out, send an email to rentals@queenmarypark.ca for more details.
  10. I enjoyed the minnow talk last night. I didn't have this photo handy to ask to what this fish is. After the talk, I think it might be a pearl dace. Can anybody confirm the id? I caught this on a dry fly in a tiny stream near Lodgepole. Thanks

  13. Hi Peter, I gave the digital edition a quick run-through. It all looks great and is easy to read. I also like the links to additional information. You did some great work on this - thanks for taking the time to put it all together.
  14. Thanks for posting the links. I know that when seeing some of the mapping portals for the first time it can take a while to figure them out. Your presentation was a great run-through to get us all familiar with how they work and what they can do.

  21. WHAT TROUT EAT – DIGITAL EDITION After the successful installation of the new ‘What Trout Eat’ displays at Muir Lake, some members of Northern Lights Fly Fishers have used that material in developing a new stillwater fishing resource that’s now freely available to any individual or organization interested in using it for educational purposes. It’s a series of 44 illustrated, easy to read slides on the 12 primary natural food items that trout find to eat in lakes when they arrive from the fish hatcheries. It also includes fly and spin fishing strategies to imitate those food items at the different stages of their life cycle - larva, pupa, emerger, adult etc. Although It’s written for an Alberta audience, especially youth and beginning anglers, much of its content is relevant to other regions of Canada and other audiences. Its authors are willing to help any TUC Chapter or other organization adapt the resource to meet local needs where needed. The text has hyperlinks to over 130 additional sources of online information - videos and articles on interesting facts about and behaviours of each particular trout food item, its entomology, and related angling strategies. Each section also includes a tip provided to us by KEEP FISH WET on best practices for releasing fish. The primary intent of ‘What Trout Eat -Digital Edition’ is to introduce youth to stillwater fishing and help make lake fishing more interesting, productive, and enjoyable. Check it out at What Trout Eat - Digital Edition and please pass on the link to others who might be interested. Northern Lights will periodically update links and information within the resource and would greatly appreciate suggestions to nlft.tu@gmail.com for additions and improvements.
