PAGE 4 Easy Access To Popular Fisliiiig Spots Both veteran and amateur fishermen have ready access to a host of excellent fishing spots in southern Alberta, with real fighting fish in abundance. Waterton Lakes National Park offers the largest fish- ing area, with 21 lakes to choose from. Camping facilities in the park are extensive and fishing may be done from shore or boat. Twenty-pound lake trout are not too uncommon in the area. In additon to the array of lakes in Waterton, there is also a plentiful supply of streams and beaver ponds, all of which provide good sporty fishing. Fish generally caught in Wa- terton include, cutthroat, rain- bow, eastern, brook and lake trout, northern pike, grayling, rocky mountain whitefish and dolly varden. Although the most accessible lake is the main Waterton Lakes chain, most of which are suitable for car travel, the more energetic may wish to hike on foot or go horseback into the deeper recesses of UK park to the less fished lakes. The effort is usually well re- warded, as well as being a naturalist's paradise of serenity. Other good fishing spots in the south, include Kehoe Lake, near Nobleford where northern pike and perch are plentiful; Lake Newell near Brooks, pike and some trout; Beauvais Lake, Pincher Creek, trout and gray- ling; Police Lake, Cardston, St. Mary's reservoir, near Cardston, and Lethbridge's own Henderson Lake stocked with rainbow trout. One of Hie advantages of areas sparsely populated such as southern Aiberta, is that hunting and fishing remain as good as they ever were, and with artificial stocking, often better. -V, -v ,uj FISHING IS FINE IN LAKES AND STREAMS OF SOUTH ALBERTA BEE-JAY TRAILER SALES FOR iwmire AND TRIPLE "E TRAVEL TRAILERS AND TRUCK CAMPERS Always On Display In Our INDOOR SHOWROOM TRAILER SALES Corner 4th Sf. and 3rd Ave. S.
