Fisheries Management Survey – Red Deer/North Saskatchewan Region

Results on the Fisheries Management Survey – Red Deer/North Saskatchewan Region

What’s happening?

A review of recent assessments of walleye and pike fisheries in the region has resulted in the identification of opportunities to shift management objectives and corresponding regulations to provide some additional fish harvest opportunities.

Strubel Lake

What did we ask you?

We asked for your feedback on a proposed shift to increasing the diversity of trout stocked into this lake, and the setting of a Liberal Harvest objective to actively deplete yellow perch from this fishery.

We also asked for you view about changing the provincial policy that does not permit the harvest of non-trout species from stocked trout lakes. This policy was implemented several years ago in discussions with the Fisheries Management Round Table, identifying it as a possible solution to eliminate incentives to move live perch into trout lakes.

What did you tell us?

88% of you agreed with the proposed shift to increasing the diversity of trout stocked into this lake, and 90.2% of you agreed with setting a Liberal Harvest objective to actively deplete yellow perch from this fishery.

A large majority of you (88%) also agreed with changing the provincial policy that does not permit the harvest of non-trout species from stocked trout lakes.

We Listened and Responded

The following regulation change is being implemented for 2017:

Yellow Perch limit 15

Regarding the provincial policy, we will be following up with the Fisheries Management Round Table to review the result of this survey and make a management decision.
