September 9th

Who: Members from Green Bay Trout Unlimited, Oconto River Trout Unlimited, Wolf River Trout Unlimited, Marinette Trout Unlimited, Fox Valley Trout Unlimited and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources led by Kyle Sieber’s team out of Lakewood.

What: We are working on Eagle Creek in Marinette County.

Note from Kyle:

This stream section has a higher gradient than we’re used to in NE Wisconsin. Earlier this summer Chip Long and his Peshtigo crew shocked this section and came up with good number of Brook Trout. Some fish had impressive size and double digit fish were not uncommon. This stream section, with its mild rapids and tumbling water are beautiful and simply need some brushing. By brushing and opening this section up a little more it will allow for better fishability and angler access as well as make the beauty of the stream more visible.

Where: The specific section of the work project is getting detailed as of this writing on August 5th at noon. CLICK HERE for a close proximity to the section, and parking, we will work on.

Note from Kyle:

The parking area seen on aerial photos is large but it is down a steep grade off of the road. Thompson Road is a Marinette County Forest road so it shouldn’t see a whole lot of traffic. There should be plenty of room on the shoulders to park, however I do encourage people to carpool.

What tools for TU volunteers to bring ? Chest Waders, gloves, ear and eye protection, loppers, spade shovels and hand saws at a minimum. Chain saws will used by certified TU members so get ready.

Lunch: The Marinette Chapter has graciously offered to pick up lunch for this project at the Bullpen in Athelstane which is located at the intersection of CTH A & CTH C.
