Collecting Trip to War Eagle Dam 9/10/16

The NW Arkansas Aquarium Club went on a native fish collecting trip at the War Eagle dam and mill yesterday (Saturday, Sept. 10th). We had been worried that recent rains would have caused an elevated water level and cloudy water. When we arrived, we found normal water levels and clear water. We were glad to welcome Flip Putthopf from the Democrat Gazette who mentioned that he had traveled to several local streams on Friday, and some were flooding, and others were low. Anyway we lucked out. We started pretty slow as far as collecting native fish, but it picked up as we got more experience. This was the first collecting experience for many of our members, but it appeared that everyone had a good time. We finished off with grilled hamburgers and hot dogs before breaking up.
