Green Bay Trout Unlimited is gearing up for our 3rd work project this year that will occur on the North Branch of the Oconto, near Wabeno, on July 17th and 18th.

We are working with Tom Moris of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFS) on the 17th and the Nicolet Sports Club on the 18th.

During these two days of habitat improvement we will place woody structures and brush bundles as well as general clean up and removal of underbrush.   All of this will allow better habitat for fish to reproduce as well as allow better access to fishing.

Please try to attend at least one day and if you can make both, all the better.  We are going to test Lee’s old body !

On Friday July 17th, we are meeting Tom Moris, and his work crew, at the intersection of Hwy 32 and North Branch Road.  This is where we’ve meet the last 4 years when working on the North Branch of the Oconto.

Please click on the GOOGLE MAP to get the GPS location.  We will meet there at 8:30AM, receive instructions from Tom and head out to work site by 9AM. We’ll work til approximately 12:30.  Lunch is provided by Green Bay Trout Unlimited afterward.
