Season Two - Episode 12

Stories featured this week include:

Fall fly fishing for Pike
Phil Rowley and Michael spent a day on Lake Wabamun, just 40 minutes west of Edmonton. Fishing for huge Pike on a fly rod on this catch-and-release lake can be an adrenaline rush. Watch as Michael experiences one of his all time best fishing moments!

How trapping contributes to healthy populations
Responsible management of furbearing animals is an important role for Alberta trappers. We look at how trappers contribute to the management of wildlife populations such as muskrats and beavers, keeping populations healthy and stable for generations to come.

Provincial Archery Championships
Attended by over 500 archers from across Alberta, with participants from grade 4 through high school, this competition shows how accessible the sport has become. Casual interest can turn into a passion for many of these young folks, including one blind girl who has embraced the sport.

Conservation Officers on Patrol
On a recent visit to Lakeland Provincial Park, Elma tagged along with Conservation Officers on a typical park patrol. They cruised through this beautiful park, checking for fishing licenses, proper operation of off-highway vehicles, and to ensure that overnight campers were using secure, bear-safe food storage lockers.

Trappers and the Wolverine Partnership
The Alberta Trappers' Association is lending their expertise in support of a research project that combines traditional knowledge and cutting edge science. Working together, trappers and the ACA are developing an inventory of wolverine populations across the province. Shell's FuellingChange program provides financial support.

Outdoor Guide - using stingers
Brad Fenson is back ice fishing on Pigeon Lake and he shares some tips for using stingers to create secondary hooks in order to increase your chances of keeping the fish on the line.

Finding the Pompeii of Northern Alberta history
Trapping is one of the oldest natural resource industries in Canada. In Alberta, the fur trade began to develop by the late 1700s. Archeologists from the Royal Alberta Museum have unearthed some of this early history with a discovery of the original walls of Fort Vermilion along the banks of the Peace River.
