News | January 12, 2022 Alberta Environment & Parks has shared the information on their website that pertains to sportfishing at Wadlin Lake and Talbot Lake.

From Alberta Environment & Parks:

We are gathering input on proposed changes to improve conservation and management of fish populations in order to create better sportfishing opportunities in Alberta.

Your feedback will help inform ongoing work to develop the 2022-23 Alberta Sportfishing Regulations.

Topics of discussion include:

  • management objectives and fishing regulation options for a number of waterbodies across Alberta
  • notification items on fishing regulations, which are necessary to achieve conservation management objectives
  • updates on items from previous engagements, including walleye stocking, harvest slot limits, and special harvest licence tags. We will also include information on competitive fishing, the new angling guide licence as well as proposed management options for periods of low flow and high temperatures.

We implement a comprehensive and science-based management system that allows biologists to determine the status of fish populations and the sustainability of fisheries. This information, along with feedback gathered during consultation and engagement, is used to develop an annual management objective for a given population and fishery.
