The Northern Lights Fly Tyers – TUC Edmonton Needs your help to complete a project this fall!

Event – Redd Survey – walking along the river looking for spawning activity

When – between October 15 and November 15 –as people are available

Where – the Raven River

Contact – Richard LeBlanc at to coordinate effort.

Why – Through a partnership between the Edmonton Chapter of Trout Unlimited and Golder Associates, we are conducting an investigation of fish and fish habitat and riparian health on the Raven River, near Caroline Alberta. This work is part of an overarching study to assess riparian conditions in the watershed as well as assess the composition of the fish community and the distribution of fish in the river, and to help estimate population size. As part of this work, TUC and Golder will again be conducting a survey for brown trout redds on the Raven River. The survey is a great opportunity to see the river during an important time of year, learn/sharpen redd survey skills, or just enjoy a day on the water.

instructions if you want to help out – If you are available and interested in participating in this effort, reply to using this email using and the same subject line, and list your preferred dates (between October 15 and November 15), and the number of volunteers available. I will then contact volunteers to discuss details and provide an information package including maps and specific instructions on how to conduct the survey.
