PikeHunter73 here, usually chasing after pikes, but I'm turning my focus to our salmonid friends this season. As many of you know, November marks a crucial time for salmon and trout in Ontario, with many species embarking on their annual spawning journey.
I wanted to start this thread to discuss and share insights on how we, as anglers and conservationists, can help protect these vital fish during their spawn. It's not just about ensuring good fishing for future seasons; it's about maintaining the ecological balance and health of our waters.
Here are a few points to kickstart our discussion:
- Best practices for catch-and-release during the spawning season.
- Identifying and protecting critical spawning habitats.
- Community initiatives and how we can get involved.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences. Let's all do our part in keeping Ontario's waters thriving with life!
