Craig Porter has been really busy lately videoing what's happening on the Upper Au Sable River.
Craig says "On AuSableTrout.com you'll find stories about the famed Au Sable River-- the fishing, the fishers, the ecosystem, and the ongoing efforts of many dedicated men and women to protect this amazing resource."
The Chapter is working hard to involve local youth in cold water conservation activities.
One activity, Kid's Fly Tying, just finished a second very successful year. As many as nine Grayling Middle School students stayed after school on Wednesdays to tie. Mark Hendricks was the lead instructor and was assisted by Karen Harrison, Jim Wilkinson, Paul Messack, Bob Andrus, Marie Harrington, and David Smith.
A second activity, Trout in the Classroom, is in its sixth year. Two GMS classrooms and one Roscommon High School are raising brown trout from eggs to fry using equipment purchased and maintained by the Chapter. Visit Mrs. Wilkinson's website to follow along.
MGFTU is a proud partner of the Au Sable River Watershed Committee.
