  15. 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.

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. Pleas

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 dea
