    Saprolite trap produces a little color

    Saw a post (unsure if here or elsewhere) where someone wondered if mounting a trap in a creek for a long period of time would produce results.

    While opposed to the idea of mounting man-made objects in a creek, I ran with the idea and dug out a little trap in the creek across the street a couple of weeks ago to see what would happen.

    The 3" deep shovel wide notch was cut into the saprolite bedrock of the creek bed at 90° on upstream side and sloped up to grade on the downstream side

    After some heavy rains last week I decided to check it yesterday and am quite pleased with the results.

    Not too bad for a little mosquito ridden suburban creek.

    I watched an episode of American loggers where they placed some trees in the creek for a spawning area or erosion control or some sort. Basically V shaped with the point upstream. I thought 'what a nice way to create a slow spot while helping the environment',..

    Way to go. Who wouldn't be pleased? Nothing like having mother nature do some work for you.

    I try to leave pockets when I snipe to do the same thing so when I come back next year I might get lucky.
