Pecatonica River Sampling Postponed


Recommended Posts

Karen Rivera from the DNR called me today and said they are postponing the sampling. Conditions are not right but they will try again the 1st week of August. I will keep everyone posted as we get closer.

 

I guess that explains why there was no one at Crane Grove Creek this morning! <_<

 

Oh well, got some fishing time instead.

Sorry you got stood up, Jude.

 

Field trips get cancelled frequently. Higher water changes the catch rates and makes it difficult to compare the data from one outing to the data from others. Stable water conditions are necessary to have any quantitative data from electrofishing.

 

When we do this in the future, we should probably have a phone tree and an RSVP system set up so no one ends up alone at the river again.

Karen just e-mailed me the updated schedule. They will need ISA manpower help August 6th, 7th, 8th, & 9th on various pecatonica river tribs. PM me or call Paul Trybul at 815-703-2651 if you are interested.

 

By the way, since I volunteered a day to help the DNR, Karen was nice enough to send me the past 3 years of sampling data on the green, rock, kish, and upper mississippi river basins. Pretty good information I'd say.
