The water level at Wagon Train Reservoir south of Lincoln is down several feet right now. We will be doing some maintenance and modifications on previous aquatic habitat work there. Eventually, a rotenone renovation will be done as well.
There are numerous cedar trees around Wagon Train that need removal. While the water is down, those cedar trees might as well end up as fish attractors in the reservoir. Volunteers and fisheries staff muscled 300 cedar trees into the reservoir basin this past weekend. Many of them were placed near brushpiles that were added twenty years ago.
