Stream Conditions

I'm going to be out and about today mainly South of I-90 when I return home I'll provide a stream conditions report. I'm betting most streams will be dirty or off color, but if their not that would be fine with me that's for sure!

Re: Riceford Creek work

Thanks for the insight. I fished a small stream this week that had undergone habitat work in the 1980s. While almost none of the original wood structure is evident, the rocks and boulders still seem to be keeping the banks from washing out -- decades after their placement. Recent rains had raised t...

Re: How mntu habitat improvement projects are completed

This article had to have been wrote about two weeks ago. Whats ironic is the cover photo for the article is of erosion control blanket being installed which as of July 3rd is half way washed out.

Re: Riceford Creek work

Walt Nigon and i had a conversation at his home about the potential for doing a project on Riceford Creek several years ago. He wanted information on what he could do on his property without getting DNR permits. I told him any in-stream work requires getting a DNR waters permit whether its private p...

Re: Stream Conditions

It sounds like you and the kids had a good time and quite the feast as well! It hard to beat crawlers if streams have been high and dirty for awhile!

Re: Stream Conditions

I drove around today and most streams are still on the dirty side. I'm sure if one does a little scouting fishable water can be found. I'm not sure where STF fished South of I-90 but it had to be in an area that received less rain than most of the area. Of course, if one is throwing larger lures or ...

Re: How mntu habitat improvement projects are completed

The banks on Rush Creek will hold up "a lot better" now that rock is used to stabilize them, instead soil wrapped in erosion control blanket. However, since the rock was not packed tight and the rock was on the small size there will be minor maintenance problems in the future. Even if the banks hold...
