Fly Fishing Museum to present Irene talk

MANCHESTER - Update on the damage from Irene: Assessing our Streams will be presented at the American Museum of Fly Fishing on Saturday, March 15 at 1 p.m.

When seemingly small streams become raging rivers, fish and other inhabitants have to fight their own battle to survive the rushing water, increasing amount of silt, and after effects of a depleted food source as insect nymphs are washed downstream.

Join fish biologist, Ken Cox, from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department as he talks about the damage done to the local rivers after Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and all of the work that has been done to protect and rebuild the wildlife habitat.

This program is included with regular Museum admission. People may also take this opportunity to view the museum's highly acclaimed new exhibit: "The Wonders of Fly Fishing."
