Tichigan Creek Workday - Waterford, WI

Tichigan Creek in Racine County is the newest brook trout stream in southeastern Wisconsin. The recent draining of an artificial waterfowl pond near the headwaters of the stream revealed a natural, meandering stream channel with summer water temperatures in the mid-50s. The first annual brook trout stocking quota was released into the stream last September. While water temperatures are ideal for brook trout success, in-stream habitat could use a lot of help. The July workday will likely include chainsawing and brush-cutting, as well as installation of biologs, brushmatting, and in-stream woody habitat features. These activities will stabilize the streambank, concentrate streamflow, mobilize soft sediments, and maintain cold water temperatures. Combined with annual stocking and a pair of planned culvert replacement projects, habitat restoration at Tichigan Creek is expected to provide a unique, fishable brook trout population in southeastern Wisconsin.

We will meet at the big parking lot on Marsh Road (but we may shuttle people to the smaller lot to the south), which is much closer to the work site (map link: https://goo.gl/maps/bVh2mcHCSEADcGwU7).

As usual the workday will be followed by our traditional brat fry lunch. Please RSVP to John Graba at grabajohn@yahoo.com if you plan to attend
