Nohr Chapter “Fish with a Friend Trip”

I had the opportunity to connect with Todd Templen, president of the Nohr Chapter of TU, on a Saturday in June for a day of guided fishing and a tour of Grant County Wisconsin streams. The Nohr and EDTU chapters have a long legacy of collaboration. Jim Coursey organized the “Fish with a Friend” program with the Nohr Chapter many years ago. Each year four members of the Nohr Chapter donate a guided fishing trip for the EDTU Holiday fundraiser. At the 2013 Fundraiser I bid on and won a guided trip with Todd.

Former EDTU President is a Successful Swinger

Bill Wobbekind former EDTU president, current chairman of the conservation committee and fisherman extraordinaire landed this monster 14lb steelhead swinging flies in Michigan. Seems all those years of taking care of our fish are now taking care of you....well deserved and nicely done!

The Piranha goes to work

Our gentle readers may remember that one of Jeff Goad's first good deeds as our new President was the preparation and submission of our 2012 grant application to The Trout and Salmon Foundation. The application requested funds to support the purchase, in conjunction with our good friends from CWTU, of a Piranha sand dredge for Shawn Sullivan of the Wisconsin DNR. We learned, about this time last year, that our application had been successful.

Nohr Chapter says thank you!

We wish to thank you very much for your support and grant of $4000 for our 2013 work.

Nestles gets to keep taking Michigan water

Nestle Waters North America had a mixed reaction to an opinion recently issued by the Michigan Court of Appeals. The Court ruled on an appeal by Nestle Waters to a controversial 2003 Mecosta Circuit Court ruling that was in error and would have shuttered its Michigan operations, if upheld, according to the company. The Court stated definitively that the use of water by Nestle Waters is a beneficial use and ruled that the company's water use at its Stanwood-based Ice Mountain bottling facility could continue. The ruling today keeps nearly 200 employees working at the facility.
