Rainbow Trout Migration Statement

March 28, 2019

The local committee works closely every year with the Town of Port Hope, Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry with regards to using the river for the event. We use all the latest data, as well as the knowledge of the river from the authoritative organisations, to make our decisions on when to stage the event, and any safety postponements.

Following official consultation with Fisheries and Oceans Canada in the lead up to the 2019 race, we have received the following statement:

“We understand that you are proposing to run the event during the closed in-water work timing window and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry have no concerns”

The committee also spend many days after the event, both personally and with volunteer teams, making sure the river is returned back to a state better than before we held the event.

We look forward to seeing everyone out in Port Hope for the 39th Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny.
