With Twisp River Stream Restoration Finished, Foundation Tracks Wetland Impacts

For several decades, a wetland along the Twisp River in north-central Washington has been used as a re-regulating irrigation reservoir by a landowner looking to support their crops. “Water was diverted from a small stream into the wetland, then pumped out of the wetland to irrigate about 35 acres of hay and pasture,” said Brian Fisher, ecologist and project manager at the Methow Salmon Recovery Foundation . “The irrigation system was diverting the majority of the stream during low flows, and was creating barriers that blocked fish migration for part of the year.” Fisher and others at the foundation worked with the landowner to change things up and use water from a well instead of continuing to divert surface water.

Moving levees can help recharge groundwater aquifers in California

Groundwater typically makes up more than 30 percent of California’s annual water usage, according to the state’s Department of Water Resources. But during times like the current prolonged drought, groundwater becomes more important, meeting 46 percent of the state’s annual needs. With the rising dependence on groundwater in dry times, scientists have begun looking for ways to fill up depleted aquifers and keep flush those still filled with water. The goals have led to new approaches, like one coming out of a research project led by scientists at the Universities of California, Davis and Merced, that looked at structures somewhat overlooked in times of low water levels: flood levees. The study took place along the Cosumnes River, the last major undammed river in California.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
