By VERN DECOUX Crowsncst Pass Bureau COLEMAN An aclditiona 00.000 fingerling rainbow troll will be planted ill the Crows nest Pass area as the resnl of efforts expended by Uie ac live Coleman Fish and Game Association with co-operation from the town councils of Blair more, Bellevue and Coleman and Charles Drain, MLA. Reports received here re cently showed the west end o the Crowsnest Pass had been start-changed in fish plantings The 'Pass area received a total planting of which in eluded in the New Cole- man Centennial Dam, ii Blairmore Children's Pond aric in Allison Creek Dam. The other areas east and north of the Crowsnest Pass were heavily stocked as re- ports indicate that were planted in Beauvais Lake, 100, 000 in Beaver Mines Lake and in Chain Lakes. The Coleman Fish and Game Association expressed "bittei disappointment" at the imbal- ance of plantings and with the support of local councils and Mr. Drain, letters were sent to the department of lands anc forests urging more fish be planted in this area. A letter was received by Mr. Drain this week from J. Dono- van Ross, minister of lands anc forests acknowledging Mr. Drain's concern over the amount of fish planted in the area. Tlie letter indicated the pres- ent hatchery trout production is limited by the physical size of the hatchery and associated rearing ponds. Production of yearling trout was somewhat further curtail- ed this year by the Coho Sal- mon program for Cold Lake. The fish for this project re- quired rearing space and this necessitated a reduction of 20 per cent in the number of yearl- ing trout that the department were able to produce. As a consequence, the letter stated, it was necessary to make stocking adjustments in other areas of the Province. These adjustments were marie throughout the depart- ment's six regions and were not limited to the Crowsnest Pass area, Mr. Ross also advised that a new hatchery facility is being designed ajid some work on it will be commenced this year. Tlie hatchery mil be adequate fo serve the stocking needs for pome 10 to 15 years and will correct the present situation with regard to the numbers o( trout available for stocking Provincial waters. Tlie letter conclude.-! by ad- rising the department would stock Lee Lake with 40.- 000 U'out this year and an- other 20.000 will be planted in j island Lake. j President of flip Coleman 1 Fish and Game Association Dante Filafilo, although pleased that some more fish would be planted in the area, expressed the feeling that, the local asso- ciation is still unhappy as Orcwpiicst. Lake and nflirr bod- ies of in the immediate area would receive no fish, lie added that plantings in this district were not only bene- ficial to the residents of the 'Pass district but to the hun- dreds of fisherman and their families from Lethbridge and district who visit here every weekend.
