Lake Huron Fishing Club & the Ontario Steelheaders are the Conservation ...

Early Friday before the opening day they hold a Sport Fishing Industry Breakfast were Outdoor Canada Field Editor Patrick Campeau was inducted into the Canadian Angler Hall of Fame, Queen's University Fisheries Biologist Bruce Tufts received the 2014 Rick Amsbury Award of Excellence & the LHFC & O.S. were introduced by Darryl Choronzey before they receive the Conservation Award. Darryl being Darryl you know it wouldn't be a short introduction, letting people know the history behind the O.S. & how the Partnership came about between the O.S. & LHFC, where the Saugeen River was 10 years ago with numbers as low as 3,000 Rainbows running the river & how much it's grown to date with numbers between 45,000 & 50,000 Rainbows last spring. Here's to the Future of the Saugeen. Tight Lines Richard.

Kincardine Huron Heights School had an issue with their Salmon aquarium so I decided to make a run & check out a few more while I was on the road, water was changed, chemicals were added, filters were cleaned & things look a lot better now, I dropped off a Legacy Poster that was given to me at the Schools when I was there, Thanx to Ken Maronets for the posters & other material that will be handed out latter.

LHFC Rainbow Trout Counting & Sorting

LAKE HURON FISHING CLUB looking for volunteers, 

This was sent out last night & Mike sent it at at 6am this morning, sorry for the short notice.

Good Morning Everyone,

The Rainbow sorting and fin clipping has started and we are looking for volunteers to help us out at the Kincardine Hatchery. I personally sorted rainbows last year for the first time with my teenaged daughter and it was a blast. I have never fin clipped and my work schedule will not allow me to try this year. My point is this – if you have never done it before, have no fear, it is something that is taught in seconds and by the mornings end you will be an expert. The more helpers the merrier!

Sorting Days are today from 9 am to 12 noon. And Monday through Thursday from 9 am until noon next week as well or until we finish.

Fin Clipping starts next Saturday, February 8th, at 9 am until noon and will continue until completed.

If you can help, please come out. It is a great way to meet fellow club members and show your support to the fishery.

Matt Luckhart is spearheading this campaign so if you have any questions please send him an email at

Otherwise just show up at the hatchery in Kincardine and ask for Matt any day you can help.

Thank you in advance.

Kind Regards,

Mike Hahn
