    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.
