Re: Lanesboro Dam Restoration In Progress

My point is, with all of the sediment above the dam you really don't know what the gradient is and what/where the "actual bottom" is or the make up of it is like (on the Root) Being that there wasnt a project done below 16 on Dushee you really don't know what the actual bottom is like at the mouth e...

Re: Lanesboro Dam Restoration In Progress

If your referring to the gradient control structure comment. In the case of Dushhee Creek there would be a serious head cut at mouth of Dushhee Creek that would leave all the DNR habitat structures upstream out of the water probably all the way to the bridge downstream of the hatchery. There is no ...

Re: Lanesboro Dam Restoration In Progress

Well considering it's holding back a volume of water greater than what the banks can carry in the residential area the downtown would likely survive since it's a good 30 feet higher Nobody is saying that the dam should be blown up. (It's just stacked block after all) Can you tell me how deep the wa...

Re: Buying a license this year

Re: Lanesboro Dam Restoration In Progress

The town and the river would be so much better off without it. I was hoping i'd see that thing torn down in my lifetime but that's out of the question now.

Re: Wondering about stream conditions?

I havent seen any to give an update. With that being said, The frost is out of the ground and the sun has been melting the snow little by little. I would assume all of the streams are in great shape with the exception of them being on the cold side.

Re: Rush Creek, MN

Just wondering if fast growing annuals like oats and or rye are used to give some ground cover while the root system of the slower growing grasses take hold?

Re: Rush Creek, MN

Why not use the straw type of blankets? Also, do you know the seed mix that is being used?

Re: Rush Creek, MN

I live less than five min. from the S. Branch WW. I dont fish the section that they are working on all that often because of all the pressure it gets. I will however be PISSED if it ends up being just like the Rush creek project. I think I already know how that is going to work out for me.
