2007 Salmonfly Relocation set for April 7

Recommended Posts

I know most of you won't be able to attend, but several here have shown interest in the project.


The 2007 Salmonfly Relocation Project date is set for Saturday, April 7th. We'll get things started at the Civilian Conservation Corps campsite on the Blacksmith Fork of the Bear. For those of you who have participated in the past, this site is just up the road from the previous site. If you've never attended, but would like to, just look for the Cache Anglers/TU banner just up from the mouth of the canyon (right side). We will have cinnamon rolls, coffee and hot chocolate to get you started, then we'll jump in the river & start collecting. Following our collection, we will relocate ourselves and the bugs to the Logan River at Preston Valley Campground.


Immediately after the highly ceremonious dumping of the bugs, the USU BugLab will provide attendees with burgers and dogs. To be sure there is enough food, we would request a rough head count to avoid having to resort to grilling the nymphs to feed the masses. The same would be nice for the morning supply of goodies.


If you're totally clueless about the Salmonfly Relocation, you can get the whole story here:





Further info for the board here:

2 years ago an exuvia (shuck) was found near the nymph release site. Last year a 1 year age class nymph was sampled near the adult release site.
