ONTARIO SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT ON FISHING MANAGEMENT PLAN

Press Release MNR

The Ontario government is inviting the public to comment on a new fisheries management plan, which includes rules related to catch limits and seasons, for the fishing zone located in the inland area of central Lake Ontario.

Public input is being sought on options in Fisheries Management Zone 17 for changes to:  walleye and panfish fishing regulations, extended fishing seasons and put-grow-take walleye stocking.  

The options are set out in a draft fisheries management plan, developed with the advice and guidance of the Fisheries Management Zone 17 Advisory Council. The draft plan has been posted on the Environmental Registry and comments will be accepted until May 19, 2009.

 The feedback will be considered in preparing the Fisheries Management Plan for the zone, which is scheduled for implementation in 2010.   

According to the 2005 Ontario Recreational Angling Survey, the lakes and rivers of Fisheries Management Zone 17 are the second most fished areas in the province, exceeded only by the Great Lakes.  The zone 17 advisory council was chosen as one of three pilot councils in Ontario. Under the Ecological Framework for Fisheries Management, Ontario hopes to establish councils in most zones across the province.

 LEARN MORE  • Read the draft plan and proposed management options or view the environmental registry posting (ontario.ca/environmentalregistry), Registry Number 010-5587.

Toronto Sportsman Show a big hit with hunters

I stopped in at Booth 220 the Backyard Wildlife display where Steve Elmy and his wife Salina had their Toonie Shoot-up Display going non stop. Kids and grown ups enjoyed the digital duck hunt!

 All toonies raised will be donated to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) after the show.

Steve had a complete display of Backyard Wildlife products on hand such as RackStacker feed, no-plow and Walk & Toss seed, Glory Mineral mix as well as Quality Deer Mangement (QDMA) products available.

Backyard Wildlife also had custom made Turkey Box calls and a real comfy hunter’s seat for sale.
