Just wondering if there are current closures in this area.

Anyone know what kind of flies might be appropriate for this lake? I looks really clean with no weeds and stuff, are chironimids still good, or should I try dry flies?

Thanks...

I think it's the sugar from the dry brine that causes the fish to stick, but can't figure out how to avoid the problem.

Hang them....

Yum,  looks good!

Something I've learned is marinating is best done without salt as it "cures" which is usally undesirable unless curing.... A short soak is probably all you'd want to do with salt

I thought about online reporting too, but imagined it would be frustrating for the old timers that don't use technology and most of the time I fish outside of cell service.
Option of either might be useful for those who don't want to or can't instantly report...an app based license option would be great IMO but not always practical in remote areas we frequently fish

Agree on the plastic card, had them back in Ont and you simply affix any conservation stamps (stickers) to the back of card in outlined area. Could have a paper sheet to record catches still or an online reporting system would be awesome!!

You're right. The old cards were awesome. Had a wicked picture of a large mouth inhaling a minnow. Last time I was home I got a one day licence from a fishing shop. They print the licence right there on plasticized paper, it was really easy.

I would pay for a multi-year licence, but would like to see a different format. Carrying a piece of paper around sucks, while it means I can print off several and keep one in the truck, waders, office, etc... They always seem to get wet or misplaced.
A plastic credit card style would be nice, or the ability to display it on your phone...

Is the fishing licence going to be integrated with the FWID eventually? If so, one licence could manage all your info and make trips to the service desk a little easier. As of now, each spring I have to make four transactions for various licences, stamps, and tags. It's annoying especially since the office is only open during bank hours. Could this ultimately be connected with you driver's licence?

As of now I think the price is fair and the process of obtaining a licence is easy. I think rather than incentivising different demographics to get out and fish, there should be continued emphasis on fishing ethically and following the regulations.

Thanks Rod,

Here is some feedback:

youth license      good idea, but extend to university years (university discounts, school discounts, college discounts, etc.)
3-5 year license  good idea
14 days license  OK, but also consider 30 and 60 days licenses
family / spousal good idea
license packages concern: how will the money be distributed to individual programs i.e. steelhead vs. salmon, etc. Separate stamps make distribution easier IMO.
