I agree with Foxer that enforcement could be the issue and what is considered the river? Will the band have someone checking boats at the launch? Is it up to the boat launch, the marker out on the lake?
The limit may be 6 fish for everyone on the river, will harvesting still be allowed on the Lake? However the fishing isn't near as easy on the Lake so it will hopefully slow down the amount of fish being taken out of the area.

Just my 2 cents but if they are saying that a harvester cannot harvest 50 lbs of fish from an area that produces millions of cookie cutter sized fish, then where will the harvesters get the fish. I see that Lac du Bonnet is now a harvesting area, taking 50 lb's of fish from that lake a year will reduce that population fast. Manigatogan is also an expansion area same applies there. I suppose a trip to Lake of the Praries to harvest instead of Grand Rapids might affect that fishery as well.
I find it strange that the local band is saying that their people cannot feed themselves off the land. this was what they signed the treaty for. Why did all of your ancestors fight and die for these rights if you are going to say we don't want them anymore.

The locals want to protect their resource - thats why they are limiting the harvesting. They see what is happening around the province and are being proactive so that they CAN feed their families in the future and live off the land. The problem was not with the locals, it was with others that travelled to here and filled their boats with fish. The locals simply want to control that, and it is working for them. Good for them!

I personally am very happy the way the reserve is takeing it in too there own hands and doing sumthing about. Hopefully other reserves see this and follow suit. Ya we got our treaty rights what we faught for but we still have to respect Mother Earth and all her children. Who knows maybe the next step we’ll be to ban spotlighting?

I was there last week and no one was checking or questioning the amount of fish being brought in.
Unfortunately the slaughter continues.

I have been there the last two days dropping off/picking up and checked every time - CO as well as the local Guardians, AND the boat wash was open! That usually never happens...
Still are a few bad apples, but overall the progress is good.
