The Fox Valley Trout Unlimited chapter will be holding the 35th annual Fishing Day for People with Handicaps and Special Needs at The Main Creek Farm pond on Saturday, May 18, 2013. The fishing will start at 10:30 and be followed with a brat and burger fry at noon. The chapter is soliciting monetary donations to cover the cost of the food and the purchase of the trout that will be planted in the pond. Please call Rich Erickson or Jim Cuhel, phone numbers are listed on the back page, if you have any questions or if you can make a monetary donation. Members are also encouraged to assist on the day of the event by helping to bait hooks, net fish, clean fish, help in the kitchen, and assist with cleanup.

Elwar Engle lead a joint effort of the Fox Valley TU and Central Wisconsin TU on a icy and chilly April 13th morning at Davies Creek. The clean up efforts will insure the quality of this fine fish nursery for years to come. Davies Creek was the first stream improvement project completed by the Fox Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimted.
FVTC Natural Resources Students and FVTU members worked hard to finish up Brush Wads while........Jim Jenkin experienced a medical emergency that was self ingested.
On June 9th the habitat crews built "Luncker Structures". They also de-brushed up stream from Jensen road. Six luncker structures were built which will be placed in the creek later in the year. We have additional luncker structures that need to be built and placed at a number of other locations.
ay 12th was a hard day on Peterson Creek. A solid gravel stream bed makes it very difficult to jet piles for overhead trout structures. Lunker Structures will be the solution to the problem, We will start construction of Luncker Structures on June 9th. See our calendar for details.
The April 14th, 2012 Habitat Day was beautiful. It was sunny and excellent work temperatures as the following pictures testify. This month we will resume work on Peterson Creek. Check the Calendar for specifics.
