The Brule River Sportsmen's Club has a near four decade record of accomplishing annual volunteer trout habitat projects in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Lake Superior Basin Fisheries Staff. Here is an example of one seasons project accomplished nearly twenty years ago where washed sized stones (1/4 to 1/2 inch) were added to a known Brook Trout (Brook Char) spawning area to enhance reproductive potential. This project was deemed succesful in both the initial spawning season post placement of the gravel and continues to aid in annually producing the substantially improved fishery we enjoy today on Wisconsin's Bois Brule River. The project involved volunteers from a number of local environmental organizations including Brule River Preservation, Douglas County Fish and Game, Trout Unlimited, Lake Superior Steelhead Association and others. Each of the two Saturdays between fifty and sixty people volunteered their Saturday mornings to complete the project.
