  • The fifth in a series of webisodes produced by Wings over Watersheds has been released. The short films chronicle the the largest dam removal project in United States history and renewal of the Elwha River. Watch via The National Park Service.
  • A sweep set, explains Phil Monahan, will increase your odds of a successful hook up when fishing downstream. Read more about this technique on the Orvis blog.
  • A new research effort being conducted by scientists with the Nature Conservancy is studying how to best conserve lake trout populations in the Adirondacks given rising global temperatures. “By studying these fish, it helps us get our head around what impacts this region will face from climate change,” says Michelle Brown, director of conservation science for the Conservancy’s Adirondacks chapter, “and how we can protect the areas that will be more important for long-term resilience.”
