Volunteers Needed to Count Fish!(Dec 13) The Greater Bobs and Crow Lakes Association and the Foundation are looking for volunteers to help survey several walleye spawning beds that were completely rebuilt several years ago. Beginning around the 2nd week of April 2019, the volunteers will go to the spawning beds after 9 pm for approximately 1 hour to count the spawning females. All of the necessary equipment and training will be provided by local experts. For those of you with a keen interest in fish reproduction in a natural setting will find the experience fascinating. If you are interested, contact or for more information.
Parks Canada Dam Update (Nov 14/18) Construction work on Phase 1 will continue until Feb 2019 towards the construction of approx. 2/3 of the dam structure. The final phase will begin in summer 2019 and is expected to be completed in Fall 2019. Excavation of the bedrock beneath the new site is finished. They are now grouting the bedrock foundation to prepare the site for the new dam structure. The placement of concrete footings will begin in mid-Nov. In late Feb/2019, the contractor will take a brief break from construction to follow the in-water restrictions in place to protect fish populations during the spring spawning season. Once the restructions are lifted in July 2019, construction will resume.
Reminder: 2018 Membership Fees A "gentle" reminder to all members who have not yet paid their 2018 membership fee of $40. This funding goes directly to the programs delivered by the GBCLA including safety buoys, Lake Views magazine, water quality testing, educational seminars, our brand new website plus many more. Only through the support of our members can the GBCLA and its 100% volunteer organization, fulfill our lake stewardship responsibilities that we are so proud and fortunate to own.
New GBCLA Website (Oct 31) The GBCLA launched its brand new website on Halloween, but it is not a trick but should be a treat! Try out the new site and give us any feedback on errors, omissions or extra features you would like to see added. We hope the new site will eventually become the "one stop" location for useful information on Bobs and Crow lakes. The new site has many new features including: an Events calendar to capture important dates, Cottager Resource Centre for cottage owners and guests, GBCLA Store for helpful products and a simplified menu structure to make navigating the site easy and intuitive. There will be a formal announcement soon once we have gained some experience with the new website.
