The ministry planning to conduct a Hamilton Harbour Volunteer Angler Diary Program this winter. The focus of the program is ice fishing for Walleye.
Recent Walleye stocking efforts to help restore the Hamilton harbour fish community have resulted in increased reports (including yours!) of Walleye being caught by anglers. We would like to collect more information about the Walleye fishery this winter. A diary package has been prepared and we are now looking for volunteer anglers.
If you are planning to ice fish on Hamilton Harbour this winter and would be interested in completing a diary, please contact me. I shall tell you more about the program and send you a dairy package. If you know of any other anglers that might be interested in participating in the program, please forward this email to them.
Note: We have conducted a similar diary program on the Bay of Quinte for the past number of years (fall Walleye fishery). If you would like to see some of the results of the Bay of Quinte diary program, please see Section 2.5 in our 2014 Lake Ontario Management Unit Annual Report available online at: http://www.glfc.org/lakecom/loc/mgmt_unit/
