If you fished the Saugeen River this past Fall, chances are good that you were surveyed by the MNR.
Be the first to hear the official results of this Creel Survey – the first of it’s kind on the Saugeen River since 1989!
Sasha Fernando of the Owen Sound Division on the Ministry of Natural Resources will be discussing the results including “Fishing Pressure” & “Harvest Details” that significantly affect this Great Lakes tributary.
If you fish this system, this is a not to miss session!
Creel Survey Description and Project Summary:
Creel surveys are a common fisheries assessment and management tool. They quantify angling effort and harvest. Information gathered during these surveys is used to answer underlying resource management questions pertaining to the health of fish populations.
The creel currently being conducted on the Saugeen River is the first since 1989. It is surveying the popular stretch of river between Denny’s Dam and the mouth of the river. The overall objectives of this project are to estimate angling effort, assess attributes of angler catch and harvest, and identify differences between wild and stocked steelhead.
