If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city.

FISHING

Saltwater fishing has been consistently slow for winter springs in the Campbell River and Courtenay areas. Lots of undersized winter springs are being hooked in the usual spots. The public boat launch areas see a good amount of anglers on the weekend and the locals are getting out, weather permitting, at least twice a week. Local fishing guide Harry MacDonald has goodd Public boat launch across from fishing using anchovies in aboutt Big Rock Motel 135 feet of water. Anglers will be waiting for those calm water days and the past week some nice salmon were being caught at Coleman Beach. This time of year spoons and plugs are being used. This is the time of year when fishing the local lakes can be pro productive, as trout are closer to sho shore and are more active. Some hig high elevation lakes will be difficult to get to because of heavy snow; loc local lakes such as Maple in Co Courtenay will have thin ice on top but should have open water as the weather we warms. On Sunday I had made a road Upper Campbell trip to view the Elk River near Gold River. This will be a great spot to fish in the next few weeks, but at the moment this area north of Campbell River looks like winter. If you can’t get out fishing and are looking for a feed of fish and chips, Lynn and Owen have opened ed Cap Captain Billy’s Fish & Chips in Campbell river. You can eat in or take out. They are open year round and the cod burger is one of my favorite items on the menu. Some locals have been on vacation and spent some time fishing in Mexico. Marion Krug was vacationing in Belize and Cod Burger took a three day tour fishing for Barracuda, King Fish and Mackere Mackerel using sprats or sardines for bait. Tiziano Rizzotto now lives in M Mexico and has the Punta Allen Fishing Club. He fished Campbell Fis River in 1986 when Bob Mackenzie Riv was still at The River Sportsmen; wa Tiziano will be fishing in Campbell Tiz River in late fall for salmon and Riv trout. tro
