If you want to learn how to fly fish for trout within the Kennebecasis, have we got an event for you. The KWRC and our partners are proud to be once again hosting a Beginner's Fly Fishing Workshop on June 10th and 11th. The event is targeted at anglers aged 16 and over. You can get a registration form here, or email or call us and we can get you set up. The first night is dry land training and we end the event with a small social BBQ.
Our "Youth Angling Day Camps will be coming up soon too so keep an eye out for those.
No doubt there are many people very excited to finally cast a line upon the rapids. I know some of us here at the KWRC are hoping the waters recede and clear up a bit for that reason. If you are out fishing on the Kennebecasis watershed this summer don't forget to fill out our on line Creel Census form.
We will also be conducting creel surveys on our own this summer so keep an eye out for our staff and have a chat with them. The information we collect from these creel surveys will be used to help establish future management and restoration recommendations and compliment the data we have collected in the past.
There are some new regulations within the province of New Brunswick this year and new methods of attaining your licence. Be sure to check out the Department of Natural Resources 2015 Fish NB book for all those changes.
For those who like to watch fish as much as target them we are also going to be seeking volunteers to perform redd counts in the fall. If you want to learn more about this give us a call 433-4394. You'll learn about the life cycle of salmon and trout as well as how to identify a salmon redd in the fall of the year.
One of our projects this year has us interested in learning about turtles within our watershed. The wood turtle is a threatened species so if you see a turtle while along the river, give the turtle some space and then give us a shout. We'll have more details on this project as our summer staff develop the project.
