As spring brought the open water back to Muskrat Dam, the clients were able to enjoy fishing, boating, and canoeing a few short weeks after the Ice Fishing Derby. During their spring intake, clients were able to participate in ice net fishing, open water net fishing, and casting their lines into the ice and open water, adding to their land-based knowledge and skills for all seasons. 

The families learned how to clean and prepare the fish and shared their success with the community. They cooked fish and made fresh Bannock over an open fire to create a traditional meal. A community member came to speak with the clients about the importance of eating traditional foods as health issues surrounding diet was never a concern when First Nation communities ate their traditional foods that they harvested from their land.
