The October edition is here, with articles on Late Fall and Winter Fishing, Bristol Bay, and the Rush Creek Fish Kill situation.
Greetings from TCTU Streamkeepers. Welcome to October!
In my last outing I noticed the water levels on the Kinnickinnic River were very low. While sight fishing, I spotted several very large trout. One almost jumped in my net! I was unable to lure them to a dry fly or nymph but was successful in netting many very nice size browns. I also managed to catch a few leaves both on the water and on the branches as the trees start showing their fall colors and brilliance. In this month’s report, I am sharing a Streamkeeper tip and observations from targeted and general Streamkeepers.
Our targeted streamkeepers will wrap up our scheduled monitoring efforts during October as our air temperatures flirt with freezing levels. The accuracy of our tests decreases when the air temperature is below freezing. We encourage our general and targeted Streamkeepers to visit our streams during the off season. Water temperatures and general observations of stream health can still be made and are valuable. We do have the ability to make more limited observations, such as water temperatures, water levels, water quality, etc., during the winter months. And of course, the winter season is the preferred time to be doing some habitat work.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
