Any consideration of projects to stabilize the banks at the major slides? Seems like the number of fishable days has been shrinking every year. This also results in even more crowding in the (upper) upper river.
I doubt more money will be spent on trying to resolve these clay bank issues. CRAC spent years and hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to repair these slides, with very limited results. DFO engineers want nothing to do with this, and short of rip rapping the entire section of river that is comprised of clay, I don't think there is much that can be done, or will be attempted.
I expect the money generated from this derby will be put into much needed maintenance of the existing off channel spawning and rearing areas, along with strategic spawning gravel placements.
