|WALLPAPER: "THE" BEAVER? POND|
|DAM IT ALL|
.. How secure is the dam? How fierce was the Spring runoff? Are spawning gravels nearby? Is the stream fertile, very fertile or not so fertile? How deep is the pond? Are there good hides? Is there a river current coursing through the pond? Does it carry tasty morsels of trout food? Etc.
.. Perhaps the most important factor in fish density is the longevity and maturity of the pond. This factor influences and is influenced by the morphology of the pond and the volume of water throughout the year. The upstream gradient and basal substrate are factors as well. Sand, silt, clay, gravel and bedrock come into play.
|TOTEM FOR CORPS OF ENGINEERS|
.. The Beaver? Pond currently is approaching maturity and the fish density is exceptionally high this year and in years of normal runoff. A channel is just now forming and the bottom is small gravel and coarse sand. Fish now!
.. We've watched this pond for over a decade and fish it once or twice each year. Below are some images of the evolution of the pond.

.. Watkins Creek is home to wild native Cutthroat Trout and the source of exceptional academic information. The fish have served as wild brood stock for study and transplanting. Release them all and treat them with gentility and respect.
.. By Summer of next year we trust that you will have forgotten about this little bit of water. We wish you luck on the glory waters of the Yellowstone region.
.. Well the storm has started so, off to the news stream --- after some good grub.
