ANNUAL FALL CLEAN-UP OF THE
LOWER ILLINOIS RIVER
On Saturday 14 Dec we will once again partner up with the TU gang from the Oklahoma Chapter in Tulsa and clean up the Lower Illinois River. Our spring clean-up was a complete success and we need to repeat our performance this Dec. The Clean-up will start at 9:00am and if the past holds true we should be done around noon. Lunch will served at the Watts property immediately following the clean-up and after that it will be time to fish.
Our plan this year is to try and combine the clean-up with a chapter outing. Blue Doors at Tenkiller has offered to host us for the weekend by blocking out their cabins for TU members.
NOTE: You do not have to stay the weekend to be part of the clean-up crew. Can’t stay the weekend…no problem! The Saturday clean-up is the part of the weekend that’s important. I ask that as many of our members who can please show up on Saturday and give a couple hours to the river. This event is one of the most important things we do as a chapter to help maintain one of the best fisheries in the state.
The plan as of right now:
Travel to the river Friday, fish that afternoon.
Sit around the campfire that evening
Clean-up the river Saturday morning
Fish that afternoon
Throw something on the Grill around the campfire that night Travel home on Sunday
Cabins at Blue Doors will be on a first come first serve basis. If we happen to fill up Blue Doors additional cabins/hotels are available nearby.
