Fisheries Access Site Management

ACA’s Land Management Program encompasses activities intended to conserve, protect, and enhance fish and wildlife habitat and to increase sustainable recreational opportunities including angling and hunting. One of the activities of the program is the delivery of the Fisheries Access Site Management Program, which provides angling opportunities to key streams, rivers, and lakes throughout the province. We inspected and maintained 27 fisheries access sites and commissioned 12 maintenance contracts in 2018/19. We upgraded three sites with improvements to site signage and a boat launch, site landscaping, tree planting, and the installation of a picnic table and garbage/recycling container. We developed one new fisheries access site along the North Raven River in the Central Region and continued to work with partners to identify next steps for access development projects at two additional waterbodies. We engaged15 partnerships in 2018/19 who generously contributed financially or with in-kind assistance. We continued to strive to ensure anglers have high quality experiences at ACA fisheries access sites across the province.
