  1. Our plan is to make the library available once meetings start again in the fall. We've been adding books over the past few months and there are many new books available. (Thanks to Stan Baron, our club librarian). This is a list of current titles.

  3. We received this request from the Agricultural Services Coordinator at Yellowhead County. Please let me know if you would like to help out with this.
  4. Here is a video that Elliot Lindsay (Trout Unlimited Canada) presented at the native trout workshop. Lots of good underwater video! In this video we explore what Alberta's native trout, char and whitefish experience in their daily lives, through video footage collected by river snorkeling, sometimes called "fishwatching".
  5. The video is now available.
  6. Sheldon did a great job demonstrating snowshoe rabbit patterns. Here is the replay.
  7. This document talks about options to mitigate the stress to fish and fisheries during periods of low flows, high temperatures and high angling pressure on Bow River from Banff to Bassano, and portions of ES1 flowing waters (which may include Oldman, Highwood, Crowsnest and Elbow rivers). Option 1 - Closed to all angling daily between 2:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. from July 1 to August 31. Option 2 - Closed to all angling daily between 2:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. from July 1 to August 31 , with a possibility of re-opening if conditions are favorable. Option 3 - Voluntary angling advisories during periods of high temperature low flow conditions. You can provide your input on the survey before Feb 7
  8. Watch the January 12 webinar: South Region Sportfishing Regulation Changes Learn about the proposed changes to the sportfishing regulations in southern Alberta, including Pine Coulee Reservoir, Crawling Valley Reservoir, Clear Lake, Brazeau Canal, and Sherburne Reservoir. Watch the January 13 webinar: North Region Sportfishing Regulation Changes Learn about the proposed changes to the sportfishing regulations in the North Region of Alberta, including Wadlin Lake, Smoke Lake, Minnow Lake, and Lesser Slave Lake. Watch the January 19 webinar: Provincial Fisheries and Sportfishing Updates Learn more about the proposed approach to protect fish during periods of low flows and high temperatures. Fisheries management staff will also provide updates on harvest slot limits, the pilot for electronic special harvest licence tags, walleye stocking program, competitive fishing events legislation, and angling guide licensing.
  9. 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
  10. 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.

    The Upper Pembina river, upstream of Lodgepole, Alberta, is the southernmost extent of the natural range of Arctic grayling in Alberta. The Pembina River is currently closed to angling as part of a five-year recovery rest period for Arctic Grayling. The long-term goal for the Upper Pembina River is to achieve our shared objective of maintaining sustainable fish populations now and into the future while still providing opportunity for use by all Albertans in accordance with Alberta’s Fisheries Allocation Strategy. Join Alberta Environment and Parks fisheries staff to learn about the current status of the fish populations in the Upper Pembina river. Agenda: 7:00pm Welcome 7:05pm Presentation 7:30pm Question & Answer 8:30pm Session Close This zoom session is hosted by AEP and registration is required. The link will be sent to you after registration. Registration

  22. Thanks for the update. Great pictures Wally!
  23. As part of our conservation project, we will be collecting fin clips from Arctic Grayling in the Upper Pembina watershed. DNA will be extracted from the fin clips for analysis later in the summer. We will be accompanying biologists on Rat Creek and Dismal Creek August 3-6 and there is room for experienced anglers who are members of Trout Unlimited Canada. These waters are closed to recreational angling, so we must follow strict guidelines per our fisheries research license in addition to safety and covid protocols. Felt soled boots will not be permitted. Send an email to grayling@nlft.org if you would like to help out.
