Program #3 – Brown Co Trout Streams
Article written on 2015-12-21 by: Adrian Meseberg
Ever wondered about the potential for trout in our local Brown County streams? Do you know how many trout are in them…what kind of efforts are being done to improve them…how they are being monitored?
On Thursday, January 7th, GBTU will welcome Oneida Nation water resources supervisor Jim Snitgen. Jim has bee a leader in efforts to restore Brown County trout streams including Trout Creek and Lancaster Brook. Both projects involve brook trout. Some recent electro-shocking surveys have revealed very nice-sized “brookies”.
Brown County is home to a handful of classified trout streams…including a couple that are class I. According to the Wisconsin DNR website, class I trout streams are defined as…
“High quality trout waters that have sufficient natural reproduction to sustain populations of wild trout, at or near carry capacity. Consequently, streams in this category require no stocking of hatchery trout. These streams or stream sections are often small and may contain small or slow-growing trout, especially in the headwaters.”
