East Fork of Mink Creek

The slides at right show some of the watershed features created by beaver in 2007. Many of Flattailers recall that the  East Fork of Mink Creek once had numerous beaver active Beaver Dams.  Their ponds were epic in size and large trout were just beginning to thrive. Then something happened...the population crashed.  Let's restore the East Fork. Tell Idaho Fish and Game to extend the trapping closure on the East Fork indefinitely.  For a tour of the East Fork, call 232-0825.
