We wrap up the month with some interesting guests and topics. First, retired Michigan DNR Fisheries Technician Don Barnard talks about the impact of the failure of Michigan’s Edenville and Sanford Dams. Don has spent a lot of time on Wixom and Sanford Lakes doing research, and fishing. He says those fisheries have been decimated, but that they could come back quickly if the dams are re-built and water restored to the impoundments. Then, Tom Campbell from Woods-n-Waternews has a look at their June edition.

Jeff talks about the status of the Michigan Wildlife Council’s “Here for Generations” campaign, now that funding for the project has temporarily dried up. He also discusses the re-opening of Jay’s Sporting Goods after being closed for several weeks because of Covid 19.
