If I did not trust the data from the department I would not keep quoting it! You are much too young to have seen this lake when it was good! Do you use big words?? yes!!! Does that make you any smarter??? NO! I understand that a Biologist has a degree in Biology which I assume you have. As a scientist you should collect data, study same and derive a answer that you can argue by the facts given you. Please forward to me any data that backs you up. Our lake did very well, thank you, for about 18 years until the first report was done. Then it did even better the following years up to and including the early 1990's. These years the silt in the lake was butal due to the erosion on the shoreline. The number of walleyes available were, to be honest, unbelieveable! Can you even imagine catching upwards of 15,000 walleye- or averaging 85 per net per day at spawn camp? While I might not be the sharpest knife in the drawer I do know which number is larger than another!! I know that 2010 was a bad year at camp as was it with all the farmers. Having said that 2009,2008,2007,2006,2005 were not much better- down virtually every year! I am just a concerned fisherman - that is all! I have been invited to the spawn camp draw area next spring and have accepted along with media. I do not know what will be caught but at least we will all know first hand as it will be filmed. I might be wrong and I might be right- time will tell. Tell me one lake that "should" have more priority than Lk. Dief. This lake as I said earlier is the most fished lake in Sk. Second is Last Mtn with about 50% of Lk. Dief. All other lakes are below that! This is the mother lake to the whole walleye stocking program in Sask. plus Seven parks and visitors also rely on this lake. I assume all staff are busy but that is their job - right? We all work hard at our jobs!
