Here's the link to the slide presentation. Only 22 pages, so you can find out what they are planning quickly.

Thanks for sharing that presentation Dubob, very helpful. Sounds like they are interested in habitat improvement/fish attractors. I'll contact the lady and see what the intent is, maybe we could get some artificial habitat put together as forum members to donate to the cause.

Our Chapter has submitted comments to the DNR POC on the Yuba EA. Here's some of the info we recommended to the DNR contact on this EA.

For habitat improvements recommend using juniper trees from wildlife related juniper tree removal projects. Juniper trees would be placed in deeper water 12 feet plus at lowest elevation pools during low water. The only cost would possibly be cement blocks and cable to secure the juniper trees together. Another consideration but possibly more cost prohibitive would be the use of honey hole trees and honey hole shrubs. The shrub would be best suited for areas where water level is lower and not feasible to place in deeper waters where juniper trees or the honey hole tree would be better. See attached photos on honey hole tree and honey hole shrub. We understand all habitat potentials require the agreement from water owners and possibly another EA being done specifically on habitat improvements.

In addition we recommended a mapping study be done to ensure best placement of any potential habitat.

I like it! I will not contact her then. I would love to be involved if it comes to fruition though. Have you seen the homemade versions of the honey hole tree/bush? Much less expensive ($15 each if you buy the parts in bulk) can be put together on site or at home and transported much like the honey hole tree/bush.
