Tainter Creek Farmer Council’s Stream & Farms Field Day


Saturday, June 1
9:00 – 2:00 pm

Bring the whole family for a wonderful day on Tainter Creek! The Tainter Creek Watershed Council’s  ‘Free Fishing Weekend’ event will take place on the Olson Family Farm in Star Valley. The event is held on the State of Wisconsin’s ‘Free Fishing Weekend,’ when anyone can fish without a license. The event is intended to highlight Tainter Creek’s status as a Class One trout stream, and the farmer’s efforts to protect and enhance water quality in the watershed. The event will include casting and fly-tying lessons, a free grilled lunch at 12:30 p.m., a farmer panel, a water quality presentation by David Krier of Valley Stewardship Network, and prizes for children. Scheduled activities will include a fish shocking of the creek to demonstrate the variety of fish in the stream at 10:30 a.m. Vernon County DNR Fisheries Biologist Kirk Olson will once again lead the shocking. At 11:30 wagons will load for a tour of a TUDARE steambank restoration project on the nearby Rayner property along Conway Creek, a tributary of Tainter Creek.

Instructors: Tainter Creek Farmer-led Watershed Council Members, Trout Unlimited Driftless Area Restoration (TUDARE), and other regional experts.

Location: 50744 County Road B, Soldiers Grove (Crawford County) along County Road B between Star Valley and Towerville.
