Trout Stream Restoration

3 posts in this topic

Hiawatha Trout Unlimited needs your help for a project that's being done on Trout Run over the next couple weekends! Starting Wednesday...

Wednesday, July 11th

We're meeting at the Lohman Bridge this Wednesday at 6:30pm to do some pre-project work. If you can help us out, please do!

If you don't know how to get to the site of the project, it's the first access point upstream of Bucksnort Dam. Here's a map that pinpoints exactly where you want to park. You won't be able to miss the project from there.

Saturday, July 14th-Monday, July 16th

Same place as linked to in the map above, we'll meet at 8am for introductions and work begins at 9am. Come on down to work, help out, or if you're just interested in watching to see what the heck is going on because you've heard about our projects and are curious, come down and ask questions. We will feed anyone who comes down to the project site if you let us know you'll be there. Please contact Tom Dornack at brntrout@hotmail.com and let him know you can make it. We will be more than happy to address any questions that anyone has about the work that we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and why it’s beneficial to the resource.

Saturday, July 21st-Monday, July 23rd

Same fish time, same fish place. We especially need volunteers for this weekend, and we hope to be finishing things up. Please contact Tom at the email above to tell him you can make it.

I know some of you on the board made it to last year's project and your help was very appreciated. I also think it was quite a learning experience for everyone who showed up. If you've got some free time this weekend and/or next, it'd be worth your while to come down and check things out.

Thanks!

We had about 35 volunteers along with many looky-lous this past weekend. Everyone, especially the landowners (some very skeptical at first) were amazed at the work that was done as well as how quickly fish moved into their improved holding areas. Trout were even rising to insects within 10 feet of the heavy machinery. It was quite the weekend, and there's much more to do next weekend! cool.gif

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
