Re: Cooks Brook Beaver Dam Removals


eWe're contacting you in the event that you or someone you know might like to help.  We're preparing to breach a series of 12 beaver dams we located last year in a one mile stretch of Cooks Brook in Dayton/Hollis, ME.  Some of the dams are substantial -- completely blocking salmon migration and seriously hampering the stream's flow.  The breaching will restore passage and improve flow and water temperatures.  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Best regards,

2016 Maker's Faire


Great Bay Trout Unlimited spent a day at the Children's Museum in Dover at the Annual Maker’s Faire.  It is a fabulous opportunity for outreach to talk about what Trout Unlimited is and an opportunity to get young and old involved in tying flies and casting instruction; of course, a little from me as the chapter President of GBTU to tell what we do as a chapter.
Everyone got to go home with the flies they tied, plus extras with many of our tiers in the 5 year old range, but we had a few younger.
