Hey, thought I'd write a blog post today. Novel idea, right?
I got some photos via email of the dam removal process over at the Stony Creek. Yeah, I mentioned that the dam was coming out in a previous post, but the real heavy lifting finally got started this past week.
While dam removal is viewed as pretty important, this one is a bit controversial because the dam is kind of the centerpiece for recreational fishing on the Stony Creek. No dam = two less deep holes (above & below) for the stocked trout.
I mean check out this "before" picture from this year's Stony Creek Anglers Trout Tournament as reference:
And here are some "after-ish" pictures (courtesy Ray Duff):
It's going to take a little while for the Stony Creek to settle down and find its new flow...but it will definitely look very, very different a year from now.
