Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 UTHBRIDGt HERAIO Tuesday, March 13, W3 UOUTHEKN ALBERT A anglers could find them- selves in some difficully this spring unless they re- view (ho 1972 regulations. A considerable number of streams, particularly in the southwestern corner of I h e province, closed to ang- lers at intervals last fall. A new year does not mean these same streams are now open to angling. In fact, in the majority of the cases, many of these streams will remain closed until much later tliis spring. This practice has been fol- lowed for a number of years, and biologists must feel there THE ALTERNATING SYS- TEM used for open and closed water which changed from year to year, will remain in effect on some of the streams unlv. The new approach will ap- ply to other streams, closed until predetermined dates. Still other streams will re- main open the year round as they have in the past. In any event check your 1972 regulations. These regu- lations are not listed on the map guide. If you have mis- placed yours, obtain another copy.

De- pending on weather condi- tions at any given time dur- ing the year, water levels can vary considerably.

Be- cause they did not have to ob- tain, a licence of any kind, it is doubtful that many would have bothered lo obtain a copy of the regulations. Officers do not want to cause hardship be- cause of a lack of under- standing. Pensioners may be issued a licence free of charge this year. This should eliminate at least some of the embarras- sing problems that have ap- peared in the past. This is welcome news in- deed. The fish and wildlife division agrees whole-hearted- ly with this change and so do the pensioners. Angling for pike is good on all irrigation Impoundments. Some of the best are Horse- fly near Taber, Travers Dam, Lake Newell near Brooks and Ridge Reservoir south of Ray- mond. Biggest pike taken this season is a 35-pounder out ol Travers, It went to a diamont fly fisherman using a net. m SPORT Gilbert is a man of many moods for New York NEW YORK
