Fisheries Access Site Management

ACA’s Land Management Program encompasses activities intended to conserve, protect, and enhance wildlife and fish 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 access to key streams, rivers, and lakes throughout the province. We inspected and maintained 24 fisheries access sites and commissioned ten contracts to maintain 19 sites in 2021/22. We upgraded four sites with improvements to day-use facilities and access areas including installing a floating dock, casting platforms, and a wildlife-proof garbage bin; constructing a temporary parking area; removing hazardous trees; repairing vehicle barriers; gravelling a parking area; and painting infrastructure. We worked to secure partners to assist with the completion of access and day-use infrastructure developments planned for the Boulder Lake site and continued to investigate two additional waterbodies on Crown land in the Central Region. We recognized 25 partners in 2021/22 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.
