CENTRAL WISCONSIN TROUT UNLIMITED WORKDAY

On Saturday, May 18th, members of the Central Wisconsin Trout Unlimited Chapter (CWTU) conducted their first workday of the 2024 summer season on the Mecan River west of Wautoma, truly one of Wisconsin’s premier trout streams.

Members of the Fox Valley TU chapter and the Elliott Donnelley chapter from Illinois joined them.  All of the work was conducted under the direction of members of the Wisconsin DNR Habitat Management team out of Wild Rose.  The DNR staff members all contribute their time on this project on a volunteer basis.

The work consisted mainly of replacing stones that had collapsed into the river from previous stream bank improvement and placing logs and brush piles along the stream to aid in stream bank rebuilding.  According to the DNR, this is the first time improvement work has been conducted in this section of the stream since 1966.

The CWTU conducts workdays on the third Saturday of each month from May through September. Last year, all of the work was focused on the West Branch of the White River. In 2024, the focus will be on the Mecan.

Central Wisconsin Trout Unlimited is an active group of TU members from the Central Sands area of Wisconsin, which covers Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Marquette, Waushara, and Winnebago Counties. It includes more than 450 members who share a common goal of conserving and protecting our cold water resources.
