Breathing New Life into a Local Favorite

Posted by on January 27, 2017

These guys put together a nice video about a special place for fly anglers close to Chicago.  This river is undergoing a dam removal real soon that should overall improve the water quality, but it will definitely have a different personality as a free flowing river.  Opening well over a hundred miles of river including tributaries could increase the chance/rate of natural reproduction in many species.  It will be sad to put this place off for a season or two while sediment from behind the dam redistributes itself throughout the river, but if it means we will have a wild and free flowing river I wont complain.
