2008 Gunpowder River Electrofishing Survey

Please join the Backwater Angler Staff and DNR Fisheries Biologists for the Annual electroshocking survey on the Gunpowder River.

The following schedule will be kept firm. The only exceptions will be if electrofishing conditions are unacceptable, (ie. Flooding,muddy water, or torrential rain). Volunteers should check with me, (cgougeon@dnr.state.md.us) at work, (410) 442-2080 or on my cell phone, (410) 570-5718, a day or two prior to the work date to confirm that the survey date will go as planned. All meeting times will be at 9:45 A.M. at the planned meeting location. Bring chest high waders if you plan to assist us in the stream. Those not able to assist with the electrofishing are very welcome to attend and observe from the bank. Sampling usually extends to about 3:00 P.M. each day. If you plan to assist in the electrofishing activity, please call or email to confirm the dates that you plan to attend. Confirmations will allow us to ensure enough help will be available each sample date.
