Friends Request - Monday, March 18, 2013

                          Wisconsin Trout Unlimited

Friends of Wisconsin
 
March, 2013
 
Dear Wisconsin TU Member:
 
The Friends of Wisconsin program is as strong as ever, and your support is going right back into YOUR streams. 2012 was another good year, with well over $14,000 in donations. The 2013 Grant requests have come in and projects across the state are in progress. The following are some of the projects that Friends money is going towards:
 
The Kiap-TU-Wish Chapter launched the “Bring Back the Natives” stream habitat restoration project on the Trimbelle River in Pierce County. The project will restore nearly 4,500 feet of stream habitat for Brook Trout and other aquatic species at the headwaters of the Trimbelle River as well as reducing sediment flow to the Mississippi River.
 
The Fox Valley and Shaw-Paca Chapters are providing funding for a two person trout habitat improvement crew to work in and out of the Wild Rose Habitat Station.  This crew will work on development and maintenance of area trout streams and past projects. This work will be in Waushara, Waupaca and Shawano Counties and benefits a host of streams.

The Clearwater Chapter will being doing a restoration project on the North Branch Elk Creek in Trempealeau County. The project will involve the removal of trees, installation of rocks, and the construction of weirs, deflector logs along with other techniques to improve the habitat of the stream.

 With your generous donation of $100.00 or more, your gift is a Fishpond Micro-Trash collector. It will hold used tippet, broken hooks, and other small trash we find along the riverbanks. It fits in a pocket, or can be attached to your vest. We sincerely thank Tight Lines Fly Shop in De Pere for helping us procure this gift. In addition, Friends contributors’ names will be published in four consecutive editions of Wisconsin Trout.
 
Please consider donating to the Friends of Wisconsin this year, so the habitat work on our precious trout streams can continue, and so you and future generations can enjoy those streams.
 
Thank you again for your donation!

TU Chapters fund Habitat Crew - Monday, March 26, 2012

 

Central Wisconsin Trout Habitat Crew 2012
The following chapters of Trout Unlimited funded a 3 person trout habitat crew under the direction of Shawn Sullivan, Wisconsin DNR Fisheries Operation Supervisor out of the Wild Rose field office. The contributing chapters were Shaw-Pac, Fox Valley, Central, and Southeastern chapters, with a matching $4000 grant from the Wisconsin TU Friends program. This 3 person trout habitat crew will work on development and maintenance of area trout streams and past projects.  These positions would also be responsible to work on Saturday TU work days. Due to DNR budget constraints/personnel shortages, this work would not be completed this year without these positions. The Trout Unlimited chapters will fund( 2) of the  habitat crew positions and trout stamp monies will fund the third position. The crew will be hard at work improving trout habitat for 10 weeks this summer in Shawano and Waupaca Counties.
In Shawano County the crew will be working on accomplishing 1,700 ft of habitat on Wilson Creek, The Wilson Creek project will be the largest in the sense that it will require heavy equipment in order to accomplish major restoration work to this critically important cold-water tributary of the Middle Branch Embarrass River .Experienced technicians will be responsible for the development of this project and the crew will be under their direction doing maintenance. Also on the slate of trout stream candidates is 2000 ft on the S. Branch Embarrass River, and maintenance on bank covers on the N. Branch Embarrass near Bowler.  
In Waupaca County the Peterson Creek project will receive 1000ft of improvements that include 3-4 bank covers, mid- channel boulders and brush bundles. Maintenance on the Waupaca River Project upstream of County Q. Leer Creek or the S.B. of the Little Wolf will get 3-4 bank covers installed as part of this busy summer schedule. Maintenance and/or brush work will take place on the Spaulding, Whitcomb, Murray and Radley Creeks.
