Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta JWM 13, THI IITHMIDOE HttAlft Waterton Reservoir is too big to be stocked successfully with hatchery rainbows. What are the chances of getting the fish to do their own stocking? What about getting a million good trout in that large lake via natural spawning in Dry- wood Creek? And at the sane time what about nat- ural spawning in Willow Creek to build the trout pop- ulation in Chain Lakes? These important questions may be answered shortly. Work is starting this year on trying to find the answers. Duane Radford, regional fishery biologist at Leth- bridge, reports as follows: "This is to advise that sev- eral fishery problems, are to be studied by B. F. Bid- good, fishery research biolo- gist, Edmonton, in the Leth- bridge region in 1973. "This section has installed a fish trap in Willow Creek just upstream of Chain Lakes to monitor fish movement in this stream. This trap was placed in Willow Creek on April 17, .1973 and will re- main until the end of August of this year. The numbers end species of fish using this stream as a spawning area will be determined. Objective "However, the main objec- tive of the study is to assess whether rainbow trout from' the Bow River (a homing population) can be introduc- ed as fingerlings into Willow Creek to supplement the pop- ulation in Chain Lakes. "If this is possible, B. F. Bicigocd, in co-operat ion v.'itb A. C. Sinclair, hatchery superintendent, should be able to trap these rainbows when they move upstream from Chain Lakes to spawn in Wil- low Creek and thereby ob- tain a brood stock within Al- berta for hatchery produc- tion. "Mr. Bidgood may also assess the potential of Dry- wood Creek, a tributary of Waterton Reservoir, for the same purpose this year. "If homing populations of rainbow trout can be estab- lished in the above streams it may be possible to main- tain trout fisheries in Chain Lakes and Waterton Reser- voirs without conventional use of hatchery fingering rainbow trout. This would especially significant for Waterton Reservoir since ap- proximately two million trout fingerlings per year would have to be stocked in this impoundment to maintain a trout fishery; this quota would exhaust at least 20 per cent of our possible pre- dicted provincial hatchery production and is obviously too large to warrant stocking by conventional means. Removed "Probably all but about of UK two species of suckers present in Chain Lakes which are expected to run in Willow Creek this year will be removed by means of the fist trap. There is a sub- stantial population of suckers in Chain Lakes Reservoir and the removal of these fish from the system might im- prove the trout fishery in subsequent years. "However, it is also possi- ble that wifch the removal of the expected large numbers of mature suckers from Wil- low Creek there will be an upsurge in the immature suckers remaining in Chain Lakes Ressrvoir. "For this reason, about 000 suckers -will e tagged to assess the impact of the pro- gram on future runs of spawning suckers. This sort of sudker removal project has merit over rehabilitating Chain Ltkes Reservoir with a fish toxicant and could be the best solution in the long run. "Mr. Bidgood will also study the present program of stocking rates and sizes of trout on several lakes in the Lethbridge region (e.g. Beau- vais and Beavermines Lakes; Chain Lakes Reservoir and Mami (Paine Lake) this year as part of a provincial project on this subject. The details of the various phases of this study are too elaborate to describe at this time. THE MOUNTIES Written by members ex-members themselves. Missing preacher Before I started my career In the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, I had spent a consid- erable amount of time studying for the ministry. Some time later, long after I had completed my training and when I was serving as a constable in a prairie town, evidently the word had got around about my former occu- pation. One of the leading citi- rens, an elder in the -local United Church, called on me. As their minister was absent, the session had delegated him to ask me to conduct the ser- vices the next Sunday. Two services were involved, one in the town and the other at another point in the charge, about ten miles away. In spite of my protests that I was no longer in the minis- try, he was most insistent. I finally broke down and agreed to assist them. So on the Sun- day in question, I held the two services. Very shortly after this occur- erce, I became involved with a local preacher of another faith. A local resident, he repeat- edly failed to stop at one of the stop signs in town. After warning him about this on two occasions, I had no other al- ternative but to lay charges when he continued to ignore the sign. Sentenced He duly appsared before the Justice of the Peace and he was sentenced to a me of ten dollars or the usual alternate 10 days. The preacher declined to pay the fine and chose to serve his time in gaol, Jtfeedless to say this story went the rounds of neighbor- ing detachments and it lost nothing in the transmission. Within a very short span of time, the way the force was Mling it, the policeman went out of his way to send the poor preacher to gaol. Then, when the pastor was safe behind bars, he undertook to conduct the services in his church. All the s-srvices were report- ed as beginning with "Due to the enforced absence of your pastor But I can assure you, it was not that way at all R6VOSTMK Revy Exterior Undercoater For a longer lasting, smoother finish this multi-purpose Revy Undercoater handles easily and covers well. 7.44 Revy Premium Exterior Latex AINT Exterior latex paint to awaken .the beauty of your home.
