Hey DEADhead.....

I saw that thread on another forum in re. to Sturgeonfish on OT and the RR watershed and it made me think of something I've tried to get an answer for here and there to no avail...

I'm curious if you may have any info regarding when the lowhead at Drayton will be revamped?

Also, how about the ST Andrews Dam in MB? Also, the 2 lowheads on the Roseau river on the Canadian side?

Didn't the US and the Canadians have some kind of an agreement where the Structures N of the border on the mainstem Red and her tribs were to be revamped also to faciliatate easier upstream movement by the fishes up there also?

Thought I read somewhere that you were a conctruction engineer or something along those lines for MNDNR and was hoping you could enlighten me.

Thanks......fiskyknut

fiskynut,

here's contact info for the Red River,MN:

Mike Larson, Area Fisheries manager in Baudette for questions anything north of Marshall/Polk county line, 218-634-2522. He should be your first contact, and should be able to answer your questions about the Drayton dam. I am not aware of any of the Canadian dam modifcations to take place; Mike should have contacts at the Ministry or with Manitoba Fisheries and may know the plan for those dams.

Dave Friedl, Detroit Lakes, south of Marshall county line to Clay/Wilkin county line, 218 847-1579

There is a Red River Specialist that works out of the Region HQ in Bemidji, Tom Groshens, 218 755-4488. He works strictly on the Red River watershed.

If all else fails, call the Regional Fisheries office in Bemidji, 218 755-3959. Either Henry Drewes (Regional Mgr) or Ted Sledge (Asst. Reg. Mgr) should be able to answer your questions.

FYI- I spoke with the folks at River Keepers here in Fargo about this topic last summer. According to them, there is currently no plan in place to do any work on the dam at Drayton. According to him there were a good deal of politics associated with work on the Drayton dam that weren't associated with the other dams that have been worked on.
