NWMI Fishing Club
Past Projects 2022
With the weather starting to take a turn for the better, the NWMI Fishing Club is busy working on spring projects for the community, today was repair the Salmon Pen Nets project, we got a good jump on net #2 and should be able to finish it tomorrow and get a good jump onto #3.
After 2 1/2 days of working on the Salmon Pen nets, they are ready, no more chicken wire holding them together, the trailer that they are transported on even got the bearings re-packed, we still need to re-wire it and some new lights, but that can wait for better weather, Thanks to all that donated to make the nets ready for this years emplacement, we still have upcoming expenses that must be accounted for, crane costs as well as permits to put them in and take out from the city. A huge shout out to member Theo Weber for the use of his wire feed welder, could not have done the job without it, thanks for your help Theo.
40-45k Wild Rose Strain Brown Trout stocked in Frankfort and Glen Arbor today. Perfect day for it. High winds kept the birds away. Big healthy fish, not a single casualty. Nice job DNR! And thanks to Matt, December, Johnny T, and Bernie for Predator Control.
Looking forward to more!

A big stocking of Steelhead in The Elk River (7,700) and the Boyne River (8,000) today. Bigger than your routine fingerlings, crappy weather and low bird pressure were noted on this stocking.
A big thanks to Dionne for the overwatch, time and expense.
