• New article published in the North American Journal of Fisheries Management

    I am pleased to share an article that co-authors and I recently published in the North American Journal of Fisheries Management. This article, titled “Isotopic structure of Lake Whitefish in Lake Huron: Evidence for regional and local populations based on resource use”, details the ecological population structure of whitefish in Lake Huron as determined by

  • Experiencing salmon in BC

    As 2016 nears an end I felt it only fit to share one of my favourite adventures (of many!) of 2016. Last summer (2015) Tom and I completed fun-filled fly fishing road trip throughout North western Montana (blog post here). As August rolled around this year, we had a burning desire to get back on

  • First ice in Saskatchewan

    It’s time to get off my blog hiatus! I have a few stories coming for the blog, but I couldn’t help but share these pictures first! This weekend Tom, our friend Chance, and myself headed out to find ice in Saskatchewan. We were happy to find some on one of the province’s many stocked trout

  • What do I do if I catch a fish with a tag?

    As part of the walleye and sauger research being conducted in Dr. Chris Somers’ research program (click here to read more) we now have a number of walleye and sauger tagged in several SK lakes. While the chances of catching one of these walleye or sauger is quite low, it does happen! In fact, at

  • Walleye/Sauger Tagging Program 2016

    Have you ever wondered what fish do after you let them go? How far do they move from the spot they are released at? How much distance do they cover in a day? Do they return to where they were caught? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, you are not alone! These are all

  • Fine-Scale Ecological and Genetic Population Structure of Two Whitefish (Coregoninae) Species in the Vicinity of Industrial Thermal Emissions

    Co-authors and myself have recently published an article on whitefish in the PLOS ONE journal. PLOS ONE is an open access journal, meaning you can download the paper without any sort of subscription!

  • Feature by the University of Regina Marketing Team

    Just prior to Christmas I successfully defended my Masters of Biology! Woohoo! The title of my thesis was “Resource Use and Ecological Population Structure of Lake Whitefish Spawning Aggregations in Lake Huron”. It’s hard to believe that 2 years has come and gone so fast! Thank you to everyone who supported me along the way.

  • Fall Splake!

    Hey all! Just wanted to share some photos of the SPECTACULAR SPLAKE Tom and I caught a few weeks ago! This was the first time I had ever fish for Splake… They do not disappoint! These splake were caught in one of Saskatchewan’s 18 splake stocked water bodies… I encourage you to check out the
