Where we all take part in forest planning
The photo of the pond looking back out over the damn shows the original stream bed in the distance. This stream bed will probably fill back in with water as they build more ponds. Currently they are building small ponds next to each other with canals into each one. I'm not a beaver, but it looks like they are working toward building a lake.
It seems like the fish may be a bit larger than they were a couple of years ago and I'm wondering if they are getting a bit more food and maybe they are having a larger environment to live in. It seems like there is more food in the water. Of course, they are primarily Goldens but there may be some cross breeding with rainbows going on. I've heard several fisherman say there has been some cross breeding going on.
