The Nohr Chapter of TU will be holding our Annual Summer Social (Landowner Appreciation) on Sep.10th at the site of our recently completed project on the Blue River off of County Q in Grant County. (Directions below)
Food will be served from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM, prepared by our fabulous chef Doug. We will provide soda and water but feel free to bring your preferred beverage to drink responsibly. Bring a folding chair if you have one.
At 10:00 AM we will have some people and equipment to hold a casting clinic for anyone wanting help with some aspect of their casting.
Landowners for whom we have done stream restoration work or who may be considering a project will be invited to discuss their experience. This is also a chance to meet your Board members to discuss where projects have been completed and those planned for the future. Work is ramping up on Big Spring just above where it enters Six Mile Branch very near here. Come and see some before and after, it is impressive work.
DNR folks will be there and run a stream shocking demonstration. If you are not familiar with some of DNR’s online trout fishing tools, this will be a good chance to learn about them. There are great interactive access maps and info available.
We especially welcome youngsters and will have some members who are experienced at teaching kids to fish, so if you have a son or daughter but haven’t had time to start them off on trout fishing, this is your chance.
For women/girls interested in cold water fishing, our Nohr Chapter women’s advocate, Carol Murphy, will be in attendance. Please join us. We will have rods available or bring your own.
Finally, when we pack up the food at 4:00, if you would like to fish with a member who knows the local streams, we will pair up and hit the water. We can work with spin and bait fishers too.
Hope to see you there.
Directions: Turn North on County Hwy G (two miles west of the Village of Montfort off of Hwy 18). Follow Hwy G north for approximately 7-1/2 miles and then turn right on Biba Road.
