The Brook Trout Working Group of the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife convened this morning to hear a presentation by Moosehead’s fisheries biologist Tim Obrey, and got a pep talk from new Commissioner Chandler Woodcock.
Obrey had a power point presentation on his Moosehead Lake Weir Project.
Information was gathered over the last 2 years. This was the first presentation of the info and no formal report has been written yet. Obrey is waiting for more data before writing a formal and final report.
NEXTera Energy, Plum Creek, and the Natural Resource Education Center in Greenville, were cooperators on the project. Plum Creek put in a road so DIF&W could access a test site on ATVs. NEXTera paid most of the $13,000 cost of weirs that were installed in remote locations.
