Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Irldcy, Auguil 11, 1972 THB IE7HBBIDGE HERALD Wylie closes in with a 67 IF WE ARE TO HAVE some good trout fishing in southern this year, tlio best is still to come. Duano Radford, fisheries biologist for the souln, .says there's an amount of exceptionally high water in streams everywhere. About the timo it appears os though everything Is going lo settle down, along comos another ram and vip go the streams again. A. main contributing factor to the high water levels so late in the year is tho record snowfall we had during the past winter. While u majority of the drifts in the high country are edging downward, melt- ing has been exceptionally slow because of the cold weather (luring spring and early summer. As a result, the lower readies of the mam streams like the St. Mary, Belly and Oldman con- tinue to he high and it doesn't take much ram to keep them up there. These main streams have, however, cleared nice- ly and there is some exceptionally good goldeye fish- ing to he had during the early morning hours and the evenings. There's some real fun lo be had by going after the goldcycs with wet fly outfits like the woolly worm. This is particularly true for about an hour before sunset. Other streamers will also work, but the woollies seem to have a particular attraction for the gold- eye. Hold the offering in a ripple, or work it through the quieter back waters. The Oldmun has now been tested all the way from its confluence willi the Belly River near Mon- arch downstream to north of Medicine Hat where tho South Saskatchewan River leaves the province. All along this entire stretch good populations of goldeye were found, despite the high water. The ex- tremely hot weather of the past few days doesn't appear to have done anything for improved angling, however. In fact, there are few fish around to be taken during the heat of the day. IT'S FELT THE HIGH WATER is also a con- tribuling factor to the relatively poor sturgeon fish- ing that has existed so far throughout the season. As far as it is known, only one sturgeon has been taken this year. Thai was at Hie forks north of Grassy Lake. In the west country streams continue to be high ns well. Dutch Creek in tho Kananaskis area has been and continues lo be the most consistent pro- ducer. There has been some heavy pressure on Dutch Creek, however. There's general agreement good stream fishing throughout the south country may still he two weeks to a month away or, it will take at least that long for stream flows to recede to more normal levels. Tills would mean that we may not have any angling season at all. It would he more in Hie lino of a joint fishing and hunting season. THE LETHBRIDGE TRAP CLUB holds its fourth annual trophy shoot Saturday and Sunday. Activity both days gets under way at 10 a.m. Kvcnls I and 2, will be shot off Saturday and F.vcnts 3 and 4, on Sunday.
