I wish to forward my gratitude to Teresa Zanier and the Arrow Lakes News for publishing the letter in the newspaper requesting information from the public regarding the owner of the ice fishing shack abandoned on Summit Lake this past spring.
The Castlegar Conservation Officer Service was able to identify the person involved with a member of the public contacting our Report All Poachers and Polluters toll free phone line at 1-877-952-7277 and forwarding along the information to us confidentially.
As a result of the report, we were able to contact the owner of the shack and the debris left on the ice was removed prior to ice melt.
Thank you again for your support,
Conservation Officer Blair Thin
