  1. bummer for the beaver and the brook char. move over natives here comes the trout.

    it typically takes a population several generations to repopulate after extirpation. of course this is given that the dominate exotic biomass is inhibited from reintroductions.

    No more beaver means the reinforcements will arrive!

  2. Good report.

    I looked around a bit yesterday and didn’t see any turbid water. Reports from coworkers yesterday: no turbid water in Root. Things are happeningly slowly enough it seems. This week might total the snow though. Saturday – Sunday may be decent.

  3. It has been an odd year for small dams here in WI too. Lots of new ones springing up.
    Good looking fish, thanks for the report.

  4. That little brookie is one beautiful fish
