I found this and I will Quote

"Smallmouth bass were introduced into Alberta in the early to mid 20th century by
individuals or managers acting on their own initiative; these fish did not survive (Scott
and Crossman 1973; Nelson and Paetz 1992). Some reproduction of a small
population introduced between 1977 and 1984 into Island Lake, north of the town of
Smoky Lake in south-eastern Alberta, has been observed. Remnants of this population
may still exist (Nelson and Paetz 1992)."

Here is the URL for this, http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/Library/337846.pdf

Also Quote

"Fish stocking and fish transfers have a colourful history in Alberta. Fisheries
managers introduced large and smallmouth bass into Sylvan, Gull and Cooking
lakes in 1908 and into Lac La Nonne in 1924."

Reading all of this and I was thinking.
Do you think there are some bass still alive in Island lake?

Nothing wrong with another BASS thread most people in Alberta don't know what their missing. Don't believe it will ever happen but thats just another lose for Alberta and Albertans.

+ 1 For Bass lakes in Alberta.I fished them in BC,ontario and Quebec,and they are one of the most fun fish to catch,and they taste just like walleye&perch.

Burbot Man,....I like your profile picture!

huntsfurfish 09-09-2011 03:01 PM

Nothing wrong with a road trip to BC or other destinations for bass. Alberta doesnt need every species that swims.:)

No but a few less trout and a few bass would be an excellent trade off...:)

Ya I guess it would would be good to replace some walleye lakes with smallies. But first we have to get rid o them pickeral and snot rockets.:)

It would be a nice trade off, but I think we need to learn how to better manage the current species residing in Alberta waters before there is any talk of re-introducing species here.

But why they have been re-introducing trout in to alberta waters for years

True enough, you're talking about put and take ponds and the like? If they introduce them on smaller scale ponds in place of trout, that could be feasible (and fun!)

Yes theres no doubt it would have to be done on a put and take until there is found a way for them to survive on their own here if ever. The unfortunate thing would be that once a fly fishermen hooked a smallie he's hooked for good.....lol

Jorg 09-09-2011 06:32 PM

Smallmouth Bass could of easily been introduced into Crawlingvalley instead of trout when it was first filled both are non native fish.

N8orDie 09-09-2011 07:21 PM

I hear catching bass on flies is pretty awesome.

Unregistered user 09-09-2011 10:58 PM

Power plant cooling ponds would be good, see the Sheerness thread.

Rockymtnx 09-10-2011 02:11 AM

Since there is so much talk about getting bass back into Alberta, I was wondering if any of you have submitted a resolution through your local F&G club to SRD to get them back in Alberta?

Nope. I personally want to see our current species managed better. Thats not meant to be a shot at our current fish management, its just that Alberta is up against a unique challenge.......loads of fishermen, not too many lakes to fish from.
