Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta
Friday, Juni 1, 1972 THE liTHBRIDGE KHtAlD _ Marlboros' Bill Harris first pick pERHAPS the most disgraceful piece of tourist at- traction in Lethbridge at present is the 75-acre swamp divides north and south Parkside Drives. IE it was due lor a painting the artist would have to use considerable slimy green in various shades. The city's parks department can take real pride In the appearance of Henderson Lake. Fom shore to shore there are huge gobs of algae and green slimei. Weed growth during the past week has become exceptionally rapid, and the jolly green oxygen eaters are sticking through the surface the water every- where. The slime and weed growth in Henderson swamp provide an exceptional backdrop for the city's famed Japanese garden. We can hear the reaction now from the parks department as to why the water in Henderson can't be kept all that clean especially at this time of the year. We have heard the 'can't be done' replies many times before, only to find much later in the season that it could be done. So, let's cut the nonsense and let's get the lake cleaned up for the summer season, even if it takes several scrapings along the surface of the water to keep the algae down. The appearance of Henderson at present has all the makings of a tropical swamp. It just needs a dozen crocodiles which could devour the youngsters when they fall out of their boats and canoes. WOULD APPEAR the kokanee stocked in the Travers Reservoir several years ago have not taken. Duane Radford, regional fisheries biologist for southern Alberta, says Travers was test netted dur- ing the past week and there was no evidence of any kokanee. But, there were a few other discoveries. A fan- number of walleye were taken in the nels. In 1958 there were walleye eggs stocked in Tra- vers Reservoir. There has been little, or no evidence of walleye in'the water Impoundment until recently. Radford feels the walleye are reproducing in the lake and the reservoir should develop into a strong- hold for the fish. The nets also brought up a fair number of pike in the three and four-pound range. The strange part is that the pike were out in the middle of the lake In some 100 feet of water. This would tend to indicate that anglers should be able to successfully troll in any part of the lake. THE BIOLOGISTS expected a heavy winter kill of trout in Spruce Coulee Reservoir in Cypress Hills Provincial Park. But, there is very little evidence of winter kill. The nets produced some tremendous eastern brook trout from among those that had been stocked in the lake. Some crowded the three-pound mark. _ The nets also indicated a good supply of Rain- bows in Reesor Reservoir. Reesor is also located in Cypress Hills Park. A majority of the other lakes and water impound- ments in southern Alberta produced much better ang- ling during the past week as the high temperatures took over. Have heard a few complaints that some of the catches are off-flavor after they have been cooked. Cleaning the catch and getting it on ice in a matter of minutes is all-important to quality.
