Brook Trout Telemetry Report

   Anglers of Au Sable is pleased to announce that the Au Sable Brook Trout TelemetryStudy has been completed.  The study's designer and leader - Dr. Mark Luttenton of Grand Valley State University will present the results of the findings on August 6th at Fuller's in Lovells from 10 to 12.

Anglers of the Au Sable contracted GVSU to conduct this study on the Mainstream and North Branch of the Au Sable during the Summer and Fall of 2014.  17 brook trout were tracked in an effort to better understand their use of habitat in the Au Sable system and to better inform ongoing habitat improvement projects.  This study would not have been possible without the generous funding that Anglers of the Au Sable received from our partners in conservation: Mason Griffith Founders Chapter TU, Headwaters Chapter TU, Challenge Chapter TU, Michigan Fly Fishing Club, International Federation of Fly Fishers, and Patagonia Incorporated.
