Here is what YOUR CLUB accomplishes every year!
We partner with Living Waters Bible Camp & WiDNR to raise Brook Trout and release trout at 3-4 locations each spring.
Historically the WFSC had 5 different easements we maintained. The FEMA buyout from the 2018 flood changed those easements to county park with full access for fishers.
We have over 25 years of support with 2 different High School Youth Environmental Education Programs. Both Viroqua High School and Shabazz High School (PGT) have data on our stretch of the Westfork of the Kickapoo regarding turbidity, flow, entomology biotic indexing (stream health indicator).
We offer an Annual Scholarship to a local High School student locally enrolled in Environmental studies at a College.
Various Environmental groups like the Friends of WI DNR, Valley Stewardship use our facility for outdoor education programs.
Different sports organizations use our facilities, Birders, Fungi hunters, Bicyclist’s, Fly Fishing, and other recreational groups
Our facilities and grounds are used for weddings, graduations, Celebrations of life, clinics, conclaves, workshops, conservation gatherings, and stream work home base for various environmental partnerships.
The Economic impact of stream restoration and Fly Fishers to the area is 1.6 Billion dollars annually and averages $472 per person per day to the area.
The Westfork of the Kickapoo River is one of Trout Unlimited’s Top 100 Streams in the USA
