2013 Regulation Change - St. Lawrence River 54" Minimum Size Limit:The OMNR has implemented our proposed change in the legal size limit for muskellunge from the present 48" to 54" on the St. Lawrence River for 2013. We feel that it is crucial to protect large female brood stock muskellunge, especially after the loss of many large female muskellunge in the VHS die-off in 2005 and 2006. Our chapter has worked very hard to get the size limit increased to protect the fishery. Thanks to Jim Hutchings for his hard work, and Dr. John Casselman for his scientific support.
2013 Outdoors Class Field Day: The Gananoque and 1000 Islands Chapter will be participating in an Otdoor Class Field Trip with students from Acadamie Catholique Ange-Gabriel.
In 2012 four grade 11 students participated in an Outdoor Field Day at St. Lawrence Islands National Park. Teacher Remi Carrier, Parks Canada Ecologist Josh VanWieren and 2 Muskies Canada volunteers arranged for the students to seine net near-shore at the St. Lawrence Islands National Park, Mallorytown Landing Site. The students learned how to pull a seine net and identification of fish and aquatic species. Afterwards the students were given a tour of the Mallorytown Landing Site.
For the Kids: Our chapter will again be financially supporting and participating in local Kids Day Outings in our region.
