09.04.11 Visited the Squankum Brook as the restoration project begins

Today I passed on fishing and had a meeting with Eric Shrading of the USFWS and Joe Urbani Associates from Montana as the early stages of the South Branch of the Squankum Brook restoration project started. 

The first part is the stream survey and then planning and permits and then construction. Shovels should be in the water next fall if all goes well. 

This Howell trib of the Manasquan will become a great fishery and excellent location for our JSTU Trout in the Classroom teachers to come and release their trout with their students starting in the spring of 2013.
