"Spring Pond Trout Secrets"
by Jim Hauer and Tony Garvey
Wisconsin has the highest concentration of natural spring ponds in North America - well over 200 in nearby Langlade County alone. These spring ponds have never seen a hatchery truck and are populated by native brook trout. Join us and learn about these unique and fascinating native brook trout fisheries.
Jim Hauer and Tony Garvey will be presenting a "Cliff Notes" view of where, when and how to fish. Handouts are provided - bring along your own pen - Jim and Tony may spill a few secrets.
Tony Garvey is an avid Fly fisher and active member of Fox Valley TU. Tony Loves to fish Wisconsin’s spring ponds and has presented a number of programs for his club.
