Meeting to address declining trout population

The White Lake Residents Association is hosting a public information meeting regarding the suspected, recent decline in the trout population in White Lake.

This meeting will offer possible reasons for this decline. It will also provide information on the developed plan to address the problem through the efforts of the provincial fisheries, Thompson Rivers University and the WLRA. Guest speakers include Steve Maricle, senior fisheries biologist for the Thompson Region; Hank Shelley, retired conservation officer and head executive for the Salmon Arm Fish and Game Club; Kyle Beadman, compliance and enforcement officer; and Natalie Stafl of the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society. Everyone is welcome.

The meeting will be held at the White Lake Hall, May 21 at 7 p.m.
