Where have all the lake trout gone?
This seems to be the question that most of the property owners on lake trout lakes in Haliburton have been asking for the last few years. Trout populations on most of the lakes are noticeably reduced and those trout that are caught are usually smaller in size.
It was because of this growing concern that The Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners‘ Associations (CHA) surveyed all of the lake stewards in 2012 to ensure we had a clear picture of the situation.CHA felt that we needed to bring the representatives together in a workshop to provide a greater awareness and understanding of both the past and the future of the lake trout situation.
