Park Hours And Conditions

Last week we began flooding the upper rink only to see most of the ice melt and evaporate away in the warm weather. The return of colder weather has allowed us to resume flooding the rink this morning. We are hopeful to have it ready for use by next Friday, December 7th.

The lake ice remains unstable along the docks and west shore line. Foot traffic on the ice is not recommended. We hope to be able to work on the lake ice during the week of December 10th.

Christmas lights will be turned on starting Friday November 30th.

The Park will remain closing at 5:00PM until such time as we can open the upper rink. Please continue to check our Facebook page and website for updates.

Outside Boats and Whirling Disease

Due to the discovery of Whirling Disease in the Bow River, Alberta Fisheries has been conducting an investigation and developing a course of action. The result of this is that several man-made lakes in the Calgary area have been denied or delayed in the receipt of their 2017/2018 fish license. We are fortunate to have been granted our license. Because this investigation is ongoing we are feeling pressure to protect our water and our lake.

We are therefore going to put a temporary moratorium on the use of outside boats (including paddleboards and inflatable paddleboards) in our water and ask fisherman to be careful that all their equipment is clean. This moratorium is temporary and will be lifted as we have better understanding of the Alberta Fisheries investigation and plan.


During the fall of 2016 Whirling Disease was detected and confirmed in Banff national Park. This disease affects salmonid fishes including species of trout, salmon and whitefish. The disease has spread beyond the National Park boundary and is present in the Bow River water basin including the Bow River, Elbow River and related tributaries.

According to a CBC news article:
“The entire Bow River Watershed has been infected with whirling disease, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has declared, prompting new province-wide measures to try to contain the spread.
The disease can cause infected fish - predominantly trout and whitefish - to swim in a whirling pattern and die prematurely.
The agency has also declared the rest of the province a "buffer zone" for the disease.”
The spread of this disease from one body of water to another occurs as a result of wildlife and human activity. The commercial fish industry that hatches and raises trout species for stocking lakes such as ours has been tested by the Province of Alberta and most tested negative for the presence of the disease, including our supplier.

We are advised that the human consumption of fish that may be affected by disease is safe.

Tips for Releasing Fish

Fishing season is in full swing at Midnapore Lake. Iit's a good time to remind all fishing members of Tips on Releasing Fish (as published in the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations)
If a fish is handled carefully and gently, it will have an excellent chance of survival. The most important factor related to fish mortality is damage caused by the hook penetrating the gill and stomach regions. Fish hooked in the lip or mouth have a better chance of survival. Avoiding methods that result in deeply hooked fish is the best way to reduce hooking mortality. “Still fishing” with bait, where the line is not actively attended, usually results in more deeply hooked fish. Attending the line to set the hook immediately at the time of the strike may reduce the occurrence of deeply hooked fish.
To further reduce harm to fish:
- Do not use barbed hooks.
- Retrieve your catch quickly.
- Release fish immediately (with care).
- Avoid squeezing the fish.
- Keep your fingers out of the gills.
- Keep the fish in water as much as possible.
- Remove the hook carefully.
- Leave deeply swallowed hooks in the fish.
(Side-cutters can be used to cut the hook instead of the line).
- Help revive the fish by holding it in the water.

With the nice weather we have been having we would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of our boating and paddleboard rules.

There is only one boat or paddeboard lent out per card and the member whose card is presented must be on the boat or paddleboard at all times.

Paddleboards are for one person only and are therefore for members only.

Disc Golf Course

A huge thank you goes out to our volunteers who spent the last few weekends installing our new disc golf course. The tee box markers have not yet been installed but the course is playable. Right now, half the fun will be trying to find all of the baskets on the hill and east side of the park. Come out and enjoy!
