Stay Safe on the Ice!

We enjoy a day ice fishing as much as any of you; but it’s important to stay safe out there!.. Especially with the temperature increasing as we get closer to spring. Here are some tips to keep you and your family safe ice fishing:

  • Utilize the iFish App to check latest ice thickness’ reports; however always double check thickness. Especially if the weather has recently warmed up
  • Use the standard rule of not walking on anything less that 4″ & driving on anything less than 12″
  • Travel slowly while driving on ice, keep your seat belts off, have your doors unlatched so they can be open quickly in case of emergency
  • If you fall through the ice, get out of your vehicle, crawl onto the ice belly-down & use spikes to pull yourself up. Remove wet clothing & get to a warm place as soon as possible

Chucking Bugs in the Name of Citizen Science

Some of us get into fishing through family or a friend; others pick it up to connect with nature or get hooked on the competitive catch and release tournament-weekend tour. A new trend emerging for anglers involves citizen science, loosely defined as the amateur or nonprofessional participation in scientific research. For over 40 years, Trout Unlimited Canada has been working to conserve, protect and restore Canada’s freshwater ecosystems and their coldwater resources for future generations. In 1998, an initiative began in Alberta to control populations of brook trout, using angler education and volunteerism, which today provides thousands of hours of angler effort for the program. To participate, anglers take a simple fish identification test followed by a supervised outing with biologists from Trout Unlimited Canada. Afterwards they are issued a research license allowing them to harvest brook and rainbow trout in select streams in the Bow and Oldman watersheds.

Realizing my chance to participate, I booked the written test, passed with flying colours and found myself electrofishing with other volunteers in the Jumpingpound Creek amidst leftover September snowfall. The experience, and subsequent research license, not only reinforces my angler responsibility to maintain and support the protection and restoration of the very resource I enjoy but to also educate myself on proper species identification. I can now identify Alberta’s trout and chars more confidently, and when in the assigned research areas, can take home an epic panfry of fish. Harvesting one species to save another can make you feel like a superhero but it also teaches you about the nature of various species within the same classification. If more anglers participate in TUC’s Stewardship License Program, aggressive fish like brook and rainbow trout will have less domination over at-risk species like bull trout and the cutthroat.
