Southern Alberta Sport Fishing

Master Angler with a nice fall walleyeHello everybody it is Andy “The Master Angler” here with some summer updates for  2015 on the waterways of southern Alberta around the Nanton/Stavely area.

I have fished all over from shore and by boat and mostly on Clear lake, Twin Valley Dam, Pine coulee, Macgregor Lake, kehoe and Little Bow Lake and canal.
As we all know the regulations have changed dramatically on most lakes and reservoirs in regards to keeping pike and walleye especially pike this year.

Due to those changes anglers are now shifting their efforts on waters where regulations allow for retention of your catch, for me it does not matter for the most part, as I practice catch and release and do selective harvest where I am allowed when I want a dinner fish. Continue reading Southern Alberta Sport Fishing

Regulation Changes

alberta norther pikeYes another season of closed species on most of Southern Alberta waterways. Last year it was Walleye closure on Travers Dam due to over harvest fishing pressure. For 2015 most lakes are now zero pike limits as well, goes to show that over harvesting on most lakes is devastating our fish populations. Meaning that things are now leaning towards more recreational sport fishing activities. Now every thing will shift to those lakes that are still in effect selective harvest and will in turn be over pressured. Check the regulations carefully when picking your catch and keep harvest type lakes if there are any left in the near future. For me I can adjust as I practice catch and release type sport fishing on a daily basis in hopes of less fisherman on those once crowded lakes of over harvest in days now gone by. In retrospect one has to adjust their hobby and practice catch and release and focus more on conservation and care for our water ways. winter pike fishing in alberta canada with the master anglerWe as fisherman are to blame as we all over time, have taken our share from the resource and now over that time are seeing the results of that over harvest and fishing pressure as  whole across the province. Now we see dramatic changes in the regulations to help these collapsed fisheries. Again check the regulations for each water body and yes keep practicing catch and release for our future generations to come. Sharp hooks and tight lines.

Every wondered what to do with the kids once school is out for the summer? “Guess what” there is always fishing and it is simple and affordable to do.

Get out to your favorite waterway for a favorite species of fish and with a small set up of gear you can access some pretty good sport fishing near by to your home.
Nice walleye caught one my custom rig,at Mcgregor Lake Ab.

Some are close and some you will travel a short distance to. Once you get the fishing bug it will keep one focused and you will find it relaxing if not entertaining once you have picked up on the basics of fishing.

You’ll wonder and be saying to your self “WOW” that was fun and I want to do it more. The smiles it brings says that a good day was had by all.

So if you need help with the kids “THE MASTER ANGLER” is here to tell you all its that easy, just get out and give it a try. Even if its ice fishing you would like to try, look me up for more winter fun once the summer and fall are over.
