CON­TIN­UED warm and dry weather has an­glers in this prov­ince champ­ing at the reigns for the open­ing of fish­ing sea­son. In south­ern Man­i­toba, the sea­son opens next Satur­day. In con­ver­sa­tion with Fish­eries, it seems in­tense rain­fall we had in early April re­ally helped the wall­eye spawn in south and cen­tral Man­i­toba. The flush of wa­ter into the rivers and streams al­lowed the wall­eye to move up into their tra­di­tional spawn­ing ar­eas and lay their eggs. Now with the sta­ble weather, the new fry should have plenty of zoo­plank­ton to feed on.
