Fly-fishing group looking to boost trout survival at Little Twin Lake near Winthrop
The Methow Valley Fly Fishers are planning to install an aerator in Little Twin Lake near Winthrop in early spring.
MVFF has negotiated with an adjacent land owner for lake access and to purchase a share of his transformer. This project will very similar to the successful aerator installation at Big Twin Lake in 2007.
The lake level has dropped considerably due to drought conditions and the lake has been unable to sustain a productive trout fishery due to winter kills. An aerator would provide ice free conditions over winter and dramatically improve fishing productivity. We would like to install the system this summer.
The projected cost of the project is $18,000. In the past, many of you generously donated in 2007 to our successful Big Twin Lake aerator installation. The group is looking for financial support of this project and are taking pledges. For details, contact Mary B. Johnson at509-996-3218 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
