Work Day July 15th

July 15th

Who: Green Bay Trout Unlmited, Oconto River Trout Unlimited, Marinette Trout Unlimited, Wolf River Trout Unlimited, the United States Forest Service Tom Morris (and his crew) and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Kyle Siebers ( and his crew ).

What: We’ll make brush bundles and place logs on Shawano Creek which is a tributary to the North Branch of the Oconto River. We are narrowing the channel and deepening it by shoveling sediment on the placed bundles. The narrowing and deepening of the channel will increase the velocity of the water souring the bottom of sediment and ultimately leading to lower water temperatures.

Where: We’ll meet in the parking lot located in the SW corner of State Highway 32 and River Street. CLICK HERE for GPS coordinates to the parking lot.

The section we’ll work on is off of Knowles Road. We’ll take County Hwy C east out of Wabeno for about 6 miles to Knowles Creek Road then south on Knowles Creek Road for about 3 miles to where Shawano Creek crosses the road. CLICK HERE for a general location of the section. We’ll have more specifics soon.

What should volunteers bring ? Chest waders, gloves, ear and eye protection, loppers, spade shovels and water.

Lunch: After the work project, lunch is at Pichotta’s Pub & Grub. Here are the GPS COORDINATES to Pichotta’s.
