Trout require a very specific sized gravel in the streambed in order to spawn and lay their eggs, and we are going to help provide it!

Come join Trout Unlimited and the US Forest Service on National Public Lands Day! On September 24th from 9:00am- 2:00pm, we will be distributing 12 tons of gravel into Prosser Creek to aid in wild trout reproduction.

Utilizing the age old system of a "bucket brigade", we'll spread the gravel throughout the designated stretch of river. We'll be providing beverages afterwards as a thank you!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Dan.Johnson@tu.org.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

What to bring:
