Hook and Hunting: Improvements on Pine River Banks

Important work is underway on the banks of Pine River, which could lead to better fishing in the area.

High river levels caused these bluffs to erode between Lincoln Bridge and Silver Creek Campground.

Now, the Conservation Alliance is working with the DNR to stabilize the bluffs, by using logs and lumber native to the area.

Crews says the work will prevent further erosion, protect nearby trails and create a better environment for several species of trout.

“What you get is a complex assortment of material in which trout especially use for protective cover,” Nate Winkler, biologist, CRA said.

The project is set to cost $100,000.

So far, $20,000 have been raised and grants are said to be in the works.
