Keep an Eye on the Rivers

It is that time of year when the snow starts melting and the ice starts moving.  We encourage everyone to keep an eye on the waterways near you.  Our staff are now out weekly taking observations at the major crossing areas and we report our field data to the Dept of Environment and Local Government.  This information is fed to the Provincial RiverWatch program and they prepare the public statements and warnings.  Of course, we have limited staff and we can't possibly check all the river all the time, so if you see something you are concerned about, please call us or NB EMO at 1-800-561-4034.

There is also information on water levels available through Environment Canada.  They have hydrometric stations across the province, including one on the Kennebecasis River in Apohaqui.  This gauge provides an indication as to water levels through real time monitoring, however you should keep in mind that different sections of the river react differently at different times.  The best thing you can do, if you live in a flood prone area is to keep an eye on the river nearest you.

Fly Tying Event a Success

On March 4th we hosted our first Fly Tying Evening and we think it was a success.  There was lots of great conversation and a number of people tied their first ever flies.  We hope to host more of these events in the months to come so stayed tuned here.

Coming Soon Soon

Our staff are putting together our watershed monitoring reports and these will be available to view on our reports section shortly. The time period for commenting on these reports has closed but we encourage you to consider becoming engaged in this effort in future years.
