hey all you creek rats out there I have been talking to LPRCA about doing a brush clean up to clear the falls of all the brush and logs that have accumulated on the top of the falls over the last several years to make clearing the falls much easier for the steelhead the work has to be done in july or august just wondering how many guys would be interested in helping this has to be done without machinery (only hand tools) to avoid the need of special permits and will be done by The Big Otter Fishing club NOT the LPRCA they are just helping me so I don't have to get permits please let me know in this thread or through PM if you could help .

OK guys I had a on site meeting with Paul from LPRCA and we are good to go aslong as CNR will allow us to do the work on their property I am waiting for some contact info it also looks like if mother nature doesn't help us with spring flooding this will be a all day job lots of lumber haning over right in the main flow .still looking at a july august time line which is vacation and tourney time for me and many other anglers so I will wait till closer and see which dates we can get the most support .I also won't be able to do the regular organized river clean up so I will just have a day were I ask on here a week in advance I,m thinking the weekend after trout opener or the end of may I will keep bringing this post back up when I get more info thanks to everyone who has offered to help hope we can get a bunch of guys out .

SRT8; I'm pretty sure that CN is no longer running down there. It's either OSR or Trillium Railway. I'm sure they'll be easier to deal with. Just type in names on a google search.

Thanks Lefty,but They lease the lines from CNR my neighbor works for trillium so I asked the LPRCA and he said I will have to talk to CNR He is getting me the contact info so I will wait and see what he finds out.

Good to hear, keep us posted!!

I can help in any way with the river cleanup, although pushing it back after opener sometime might be a good idea, as a lot of crap probably gets left after opener anyway...

SRT8,
I used to contact the CN engineering office in Concord (his name was Deni, I believe) for any right-of-way issues that I used to have when I worked in a nearby municipality.
Fortunately, I am on permanent 7 day weekends right now;) .

I can track his contact info for you.

Ok guys and GALSI found the right contact info and it was OSL that owns the property and they are good with us doing the clean up of the water falls .But they want everyone involved to Know that we will be doing this AT OUR OWN RISK OSL will accept no liability if someone gets hurt so if you still want to help we will all need to be very careful I would hate to see someone get hurt regardless of liability issues so lets get this done and help out our local fishery I will post a update when we get closer to doing the clean up.

I may have a means for getting some coverage for this type of work. Drop me an email and I may be able to coordinate this.

What dates were you looking at for this? I would assume late spring at the earliest due to timing with fish movement, etc.

Thanks Shawn.

Two things we will need:

1) a date
2) a work plan

I think this can be covered under OMNR as a CFWIP project. CFWIP funds projects BUT they can also help to insure groups carrying out stewardship work like this. The annual CFWIP deadline is Feb 1st so we missed this for funding. However, this project is mostly blood, sweat and tears. We just need someone to cover our A$$ when it comes to liability issues.

You get me a date and work plan. I will handle the OMNR/CFWIP work.

I will send you the CFWIP application and we can go from there.

Well folks I don't believe there is a need to do the clean up anymore mother nature took care of it for us. I will check again when it calms down some more but it looks like the main falls is quite clear and passable I will let everyone now for sure later this month.

Now if just a few of them railroad ties would finally give and give them an easier jump to ALOT more spawning gravel and minor tribs.

Would be nice if them old rotten ties fell apart and let some of the stronger fish get away from the snaggers and "sucker fishermen" eh Shawn. I'm going to keep an eye on a little gravel spot here by the house to see if any make it this far. Only seeing dark fish up by work so far but the chrome will be here soon. Now I just have to get my strength back from the flu and I'll be ready to lay some boot prints in the bush.

I think the section below the trestle there should be a sanctuary. No question. I inquired about it with the MNR last week, and they said it has been brought up before, but never actually went through. Shawn said he was going to look into it too. A good idea in my opinion.

Yes anyone that would like to see a sanctuary put in place under the water falls in t-burg, PLEASE send me a e-mail showing your support. the more people that want to see it the better and if any of the other club's that work other local tribs see this send me a e-mail to, it will help to have other club's involved and supporting this. I have a contact in the MNR I am just trying to go in with lots of ammo before I approach them. so anyone that fishes the Otter or any other local trib ,even you offshore guys should be supporting this because the more trout successfully spawning in the river the more there will be out in the lake all summer long. just click on my name and send it to that e-mail addy it will only take a second to fire it off and please put your name and town in the e-mail so I can show them real people not usernames when I start pushing them about this:Dhows that saying go the sqeeky wheel gets the grease well I'm gonna be that wheel.
