    Stick Marsh report Nov 2017

    We haven't been down since early summer and wanted to see what the conditions were since Irma.
    Well the water is up about 8-10". Most of the bulrushes on the south end of the Pond are pretty beat up or completely "chopped" off. A lot of loose hydrilla floating around and particals in the water. The water clarity was dismal at about 12" or so. Only a handful of stump tips visible due to water height.
    For those that have been there before, the old dead tree to the right of when you enter the SM is no longer there.
    Looks like Irma took her toll on the environment, not to the extent of the back to back 'canes previously but some damage no doubt. Might be awhile before it recovers and cleans up.

    As for fishing, it was tough. Only managed a half dozen bite in a half day, mostly small except for one good one at 6.6 lbs.

    Also, the Fellsmere Reservoir it really full but no sign of any progress on the ramps.
    Joe, do you have any more info on this?

    Thanks SC. Reports are always welcome and needed here. One day maybe I'll get to fish there.

    Not a great day of it but the 6/6 made up for it a bit...scared Charlies Heavyweight..LOL. Ramps reopened at Jolly Gator on HWY 46 but I can not get the boat off the trailer yet...needs to drop another foot or so. I'm looking forward to getting on the Freshwater until the end of the year...except the days to chase those Sheeps at that one place we went last year in December.

    As of the last WRAC meeting (October) nothing....still in negotiations. This will be like most district things..it will be long...drawn out...and expensive in the end.
