Week 5: Water Cleanup Week for TonyS Created: Thu, 07/02/2020 - 14:04 Default: No

I'll add more if I get back out but so far: Golden Redhorse, Shorthead Redhorse, Channel Catfish, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Bluegill

Also observed River Redhorse, Silver Redhorse, and Musky.  Drum and Bowfin have clearly disappeared off the face of the Earth or a least vacated my normal favorite spots during to the weird conditions this year

All fish caught trundling redworms on a centerpin in my favorite little pocket in my closest creek. This pocket is maybe 20'x20' and most of it in this low water year is maybe 3' deep. 

I ended up having to search the area for a few hundred yards up and down stream to fill up a couple bags with trash and recyclables.  I was happy to struggle with finding trash but bummed to realize how much was clearly tossed way under bushes on purpose.  Especially since there are trash and recycle bins in this park.   I guess putting the effort to hide trash as you walk past trash bins in every direction is a good symbol of the anthropocene in general
