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

Sorry....but this is just getting too crazy.

If the fishery is as threatened as they state...a better solution would be a TOTAL closure.....esp during low flow/high temps

If they can do it on the Pembina...they can do it on the Bow....do you think AE has the nads to do that?...doubt it...

Can you imagine the enforcement nightmare? Can you imagine compressing all those floats into the morning hours?

Again, sorry.....but closures for a few hours...or for those wearing blue socks on Tuesdays doesn't sound like management. 

It sounds more like an attempt to give public perception that they are doing something when in fact they don't have the fortitude to do what really needs to be done.
