Thread: Lake Louise White Fish

    Default Lake Louise White Fish

    I was looking at some white fish that came out of Lake Louise recently.
    The wear pattern on the tails looked interesting. The smaller fish appear to have there tails shredded on the top, while larger ones had it shredded from the bottom. Possibly the way the predator species are trying to feed on them.Lake Louise white fish 1.jpgLake Louise white fish 4.jpg

    What the heck? You're netting them? Is that allowed?

    Could be they are feeding shallow and their tails are rubbing on the underside of the ice while they are feeding.

    Drifter, that could explain why the larger fish have the top of the tails wore down rubbing on the ice.
    White fish being being bottom feeders would explain why the smaller and the majority of the fish have the bottoms wore off.

    Hard to say what would wear off there tails with Lakers and Burbot nipping at your.

    And yes Jack it is ok to use a net for this like Alexl said. Glennallen F & G manage it and issue permits.
    Beware permit holder and anyone in household and listed on permit are not allowed to sport fish while subsistence gear is in the water.

    Not bottom feeders not even close tails worn due to their hangouts. Get it?
