Tuesday May 14 - our friends at Red Cedar Fly Fishers are having their banquet - check it out at their website.
Keep checking here to find out when we'll do a fish shocking project to determine current fish populations in Quaker Brook (near Nashville where it flows into the Thornapple River). We'll also spend some time shocking fish in Sebewa Creek on the same day. Contact Jim Bedford for more details.
Check back for dates when we'll be doing three projects on Prairie Creek -
'flow monitoring' to determine the volume of water in the Creek at various times and conditions;
work on improving fish passage at the dam under Main Street;
doing an inventory of all the road crossings on Prairie Creek and its major tributaries.
Ever wonder what we do? This is a copy of the presentation from a recent meeting describing the Chapters activities to conserve, protect and restore coldwater fisheries.
Be patient, it's a fairly large file - but it contains a tremendous amount of great information. Our thanks to Steven Arnoczky and the Perrin Board for putting this together.

The New Perrin Chapter Logo is here!
Many suggestions from the Board members and a great deal of work and patience from Steven Arnoczky!
The silhouette of a fisherman over a leaping brook trout commemorates Bob Perrin and his favorite species of trout. This logo has been transposed into vinyl bumper stickers and embroidered patches. You can help support your chapter with the purchase of either one of these. The decals will work well on every one of your vehicles and watercraft and the patches should be on your fishing vest and favorite shirts. Print an order form and send it with your check. (Don't forget - you can include an additional donation to help our conservation efforts!) Profits from these sales will be used to create and improve trout habitat in Michigan rivers and streams.
