The benefits of Catch and Release

Greetings from Lake Wabatongushi!

How has the fishing been for you this July? Any record catches? When is your favourite time to fish? Personally I enjoy fishing in the spring. I look forward to spending warm spring days walking a river searching out Steelhead. I only recently learned the art of Steelhead fishing but once I landed my first fish, I was hooked! Literally!

This year we have been seeing more and more larger fish caught,and released from Lake Wabatong. Pike and walleye are thriving in our lake and that is just absolutely awesome. The fish are getting bigger, and there are more of them. I believe this is due to our guests support of fisheries and catch and release practices, as well as the rules and regulations set in place by the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Well it’s that time again; time to share with you some of the lovely catches from the past week. Here we go!

Congratulations goes out to

Mr. Mike Kelley for his 32 inch northern pike, Mr. George Smetana for his 30 inch northern pike, Joe Curran for his 30 inch northern pike, Justin Curran for his 32 inch northern pike, and to Mr. Matthew Conrad for his 36 inch northern pike. Mr. Patrick Luea also caught, and released a beautiful 27.5 inch walleye during his stay. Wow! Way to go, guys!
