It's to bad our goverments and people don't invest more into habitat restoration, studies and sustainability. Humanity sure has a way of buggering up nature. My family and I volunteer at a local hatchery that stocks, browns, rainbows and brook trout into our local watersheds. Wish we could do more, but at the very least I am hoping my children learn you need to give back to things when you take from them as well as some other lessons related to conservation.

Hmmm,

Heres a thought. Applies more to lake O. Wonder if they wanted other fish numbers down to give the atlantics a better chance.

When the ganny was getting 32,00 late 80s it was alot of fish. Result of the stocking program. I think that catch and release all year on some river is a great idea. Especially if they are not actively stocked.

Duxx, that's an interesting question/possibility since there is no doubt the Atlantic re intro program costs an absolute fortune and has repeatedly shown next to no progress, even more glaring and apparent when compared to results of rearing/stocking other salmonids/trout species in the same watersheds.
It would be a typical scenario to see resources drawn from other existing programs in an attempt to bolster the failing one, that's for sure.
For me, the catch and release only concept being applied anywhere at all to start with would be truly great to see.
Especially since science based studies I have read indicate c&r mortality rates even when the angler "does everything right", including but not limited to barbless hooks and never removing fish from water for any reason for example, to be approx. 5% i.e. 1-20 caught/released fish under ideal circumstances dies anyhow.

Jam1324, I have great respect for the people giving back and contributing positively to something that gives them so much for nothing.
People teaching the next generation the concepts of responsibility, sustainability and respect for finite natural resources in general should be applauded and hopefully will one day shift from being the exception to being the rule. It's really the only solution.
In the meantime, myself and I'm sure many-a-fish appreciate it!

As a charter operator I can only imagine your position on them.
Thats ALOT of government money being thrown around that could be way better served focusing on species with even a reasonable expected survival rate.
Your Coho suggestion sure would be nice to see. I dont run into many anymore on the rivers that I used to regularly.

Even if I was not a Charter Captain, I would still oppose the Unicorn fantasy


as much as I admire Atlantics, they just really cannot thrive in southern Ontario

I have lived in Durham and fish the east river for a long time. I drove by the head waters of basically all the east rivers and the amount of development of the last 20 years is mind boggling. It has to affect river temp which will affect Atlantic viability and a sustainable fishery. If it ever shows a glimpse of being a self sustainable fishery, regardless of how small that will be the end of all things pacific. We many be after lost USA fish
