  1. Getting away from trout and more on the subject of water conservation. I was wondering if anyone ever fished Island lake over a period of time . I was told about water levels in the lake from people who have a cottage on the spot and grew up out there over 40 years .The water has dropped 25 ft over this time. Since I was taken to the place I have been returning to fish and have seen this drop in level for 10 years. Its a loss of 6 " a year and weather doesnt seem to make a difference. The locals with cottages told me the lake had natural artisans or springs.
  2. thanks and sorry if my content is inappropriate for this category. job was a real 2 year eye opener to the resource with its ups and downs and predator control [otters and bears] is part of that and both these animals have won my respect through experience and education as with fish of all species. I also like the policy... ORR.... observe, record, report, for an activity, over inviting more people to the sport but groups like TUC with such great ethics should continue to inspire and coexist with industry and other user groups.
  3. hi to Peter SL If your wondering what the term Otterslayer comes from. When I was a employed at the Conuma river facility west coast Vancouver island . This is a camp/ isolated type of fish hatchery. As a volunteer I set traps and ride the place of several of the traumatizing intruders and with millions of salmon fry being so concentrated in rearing ponds stress could contribute to mass casualties.They were large animals approx. 20 lbs. One I chased out with a pike pole, they would come around on certain stages of the moon, weather and river water levels were also a contributing factor.
  4. It was May 7 and I was on a fishing trip at Dolberg lake in Alberta near town of Barrhead. As I drifted around south side of the lake I saw what I thought was a dead head but when I put in for a stretch I discovered the dead head was actually a bloated dead beaver floating in the shallows .Not a pleasant sight and my thoughts were maybe it died in a fight or got sick . I decided to find a better spot to put in and went down the lake some 65yds past a very large beaver lodge and found an acceptable spot. Getting closer to the shore what did I see but another dead bloated beaver floating there
