FISHING 2017, ARE YOU READY

Well after a winter that seemed like it never wanted to leave I think it is safe to say the ice is gone now till next winter. This is our 23rd year in operation and as always we look forward to seeing many of our past guests and meeting new folks that want a memorable experience. Please check out some of our accomplishments that we were acknowledged for over the winter.

Environmental Award

Unknown to us at Get Hooked, a nomination was made to the Alberta Fish & Game Association for their annual awards held each Spring. Well much to our surprise Get Hooked owner Keith Rae along with Duane Radford won the award.

The Henry Lembicz  CLEAN AIR, CLEAN LAND, CLEAN WATER AWARD is awarded to the club or individual who has done an outstanding job towards pollution control or clean-up of our environment.

Keith and Duane brought attention to a major release of sediment into the North Saskatchewan River in 2013-14.

Keith and Duane described the environmental effects, the impacts on the fish resources and the concern for the overall health of the aquatic ecosystem. They took the issue to the Alberta Fisheries Roundtable and to the Alberta Government and eventually to the media.

The government took limited action; however, increased public awareness of such harmful effects of sedimentation was achieved.

We are very proud of this award as it shows that we are more than a guided fishing service, we care about our surroundings.

Tops in Alberta Guided fishing and Lodges

What a surprise to find in a GOOGLE search that TripAdvisor lists Get Hooked Fishing Adventures the #1 guided or charter fishing in all of Alberta. It is because of you our great guests that we have earned that status. Your feedback has helped us earn the Certificate of Excellence for the last three years in a row. We look forward to maintaining that status for many years to come. Thanks all of you!!!

Another Successful Spring Sturgeon Trip

Well Mike and his crew had an incredible sturgeon trip that they won’t soon forget. Though they had a rough first day due to weather they managed to boat several decent fish but then on their Sunday trip the flood gates opened up and they boated 16 fish, I heard there was a few stiff arms by the end of the day, LOL. My girlfriend and I headed out to the Fraser two weeks later and boated some magnificent fish, Christy started out with a 4 footer then a much thicker 5 foot beauty.

We are booking Fall trips for combo salmon and sturgeon so please give us a call to reserve you dates.

WE ARE BOOKING NOW FOR OUR 2017 RIVER AND LAKE TRIPS

If you are tired of waiting book today and we will be happy to get you out on the water. Lake season starts on the 15th but give it a couple of weeks to warm up and the action picks up. The river still has not peaked so a chance to catch a few is always there.

“REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR HOOK IN THE WATER”

Keith
