With the price of fuel many are considering their travel options this summer. The Kindersley Regional Park offers shore fishing or you can get on the water in a small non motorized boat. In the summer of 2009 a 13 pound Jackfish was caught in the Motherwell Dam.

We reached out to Municipal Enforcement Officer Perry Lewin to ask about fishing in the reservoir, "as long as you have a fishing license you can head on down and fish from the shores or the dock if you wish."

Lewin elaborated on what type of boat you can use to enjoy the water, "anything you want without an engine. That would mean electric or gas powered engine, they are not allowed."

In the summer of 2016 West Central Online reported that the Town of Kindersley was testing the water for oxygen, bacteria and algae levels. In 2015, it was reported that the town had installed an aeration system to provide added circulation. Lewin responded "the water is tested throughout the year for algae and for bacteria. My understanding is that it should be good to go right now."

He had one more thing to add, "the RCMP are pushing water safety this month. Drugs and alcohol don't mix well with water activities. Make sure you're wearing lifejackets, keeping your kids at arm's reach and pets close by. Have fun and be respectful."
