Beaver Lake, AB Survey
Beaver Lake is part of the Quality Stocked Fisheries (QSF) program, which are trout-stocked waters managed to promote the growth of larger and older fish compared to general trout-stocked waters. Based on recent monitoring, Beaver Lake is no longer achieving the QSF objective of 10–15% of trout in the population being 50 cm or larger. Angler pressure and harvest relating to the current angling regulation has resulted in a decline of fish over 50 cm to less than 5% of the overall population.
There are different angling regulations that can be applied to achieve the QSF objectives at Beaver Lake. Fisheries Management will benefit from your input on the regulation change options.
Your are asked to please review the information and regulation options at the My Wild Alberta website and take the online Beaver Lake survey. Please note, the survery closes September 4, 2012.Back to News Items
The results of that online survey will become part of the public consultation necessary for the selection of which regulation option the majority of anglers support toward the desired fishery objectives.
You are invited to contact Rocky Konyenbelt, Fisheires Technician with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources Development if you have any further questions.
