  1. 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

  3. Well, since I first arrived in Edmonton, Alberta in the year 1980...I finally, I mean finally caught my very first Athabascan rainbow...very, very, very excited. The Embarrass is a vey nice river/creek (many different entrances)...do not overlook this gem...you will have to bushwhack in, but it is definitely worth the trip in...go in with a minimum of three as a group, share the experience, share the knowledge, share the fun and hopefully you will pass on your experience with others. Believe it or nor not, as mentioned above... it took me 29 years of fishing the correct river/stream to a

  4. I do agree with you to some degree....but...as a fly fisher of over 40 years...don't over complicate things. Often...the "features" are nothing but marketing hype to get $ out of your pocket and into someone else's.

  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. The 5 aerators will be approx 400' out from the parking lot. Meanwhile in addition to the 5000 all-female 8" triploid rainbows stocked last May, a few more fish were added in late Sept: 50 16" diploid rainbows 2000 4-5" Tiger Trout 500 9-10" Tiger Trout Water quality and oxygen levels have remained good over summer. Spring planted trout have grown rapidly. Further stocking will occur May 2021. Should be a good fishery next year!

  6. 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.

  7. The clavemaster skill that I am worst at is writing up a summary of the trip. When the event is over, I start thinking about next year, not reminiscing about this one. However, only a week late, here is a bit of an overview of the 2020 Alberta Conclave. We had a great turnout, considering the pandemic situation that is affecting us all. Attendees included: Irene & Dan - thank you for saving the site! Terry Michael Karen Ervin Alberta Al Andrew Zach Farrah and Pau Dave R I don’t think I have forgotten anyone but if I have

  9. Just announced: To complement the release of new sport fishing regulations, and in recognition of the fact many Albertans are self-isolating in light of COVID-19, the Alberta Hunter Education Instructors’ Association is making its eight-module Alberta Fishing Education Program available online for free. “Many Albertans are practising physical distancing right now, so what better time to learn about our province’s wildlife? Our partners at AHEIA have generously offered to make the new Alberta Fishing Education Program available free of charge, and we hope Albertans – kids and adults – will

  10. I found the advertisement on page 6 a little disturbing. Nothing should ever be inserted under the gill covers if you intend to release the fish - although I know it is common practice on many sport fishing shows.

  13. Renew (or Join if not already a member) before December 6 and your membership will be good for about 16 months i.e. to Mar 31, 2021. $20 of your membership fee ($40) will be allocated to your local Chapter and the $40 is tax deductible!! While we don't require membership in TUC to attend Northern Lights meetings we sure encourage it as it strengthens our voice and adds to our funds! Please enter 'Northern Lights' on the online renewal form where it asks if you want to be associated with a particular chapter. See details below:

  14. A primary goal of NLFF is to advocate for and promote opportunities for recreational angling in Alberta, not only for the social, physiological and psychological benefits it provides but because there is evidence to suggest that those introduced to angling tend to be more actively involved in supporting and protecting the resource and the environment in general. This year NLFF successfully applied for a grant from Alberta Conservation Association to further this goal with specific reference to the City of Beaumont and ACA.s Fish Stocking program. The project is now complete. The goals of

  15. The Border Paving site is adjacent to the Stainbrook Springs and Leavitt conservation sites. These are two properties that are jointly owned by Trout Unlimited Canada, Alberta Fish and Game Association and the Alberta Conservation Association; originally acquired to ensure the protection of the head water springs of the North Raven River. BP is seeking approval to operate a wet pit at the south property line of the 1/4 section they own (referred to as the Mcquiston Pit NW-18-37-05-W5) and the next south property (referred to as the Kiem Pit SW-18-37-05-W5) which is directly south of our Lea

  16. Great two days on the North Ram. Had the whole stretch from nice n' easy to the bridge all to myself. Caught a decent number of cutties and broke off a good number of flies on the ones I lost. Oh well. Lots of risers to size 16-18 adams' as per usual this time of year, and yes Jim, i did get one on the "hippie stomper" as well.
