Thinking of the Brule River

 The Culvert at issue.  Located on Nabagamon Creek, a tributary of the Brule.  If this fails, massive amounts of sand will enter the river and slowly work downstream.

It's really simple:  There's a culvert on a tributary of the Brule that needs replacing.  If it's not replaced and the culvert fails, bad things will happen to the river.  The $130,000 project is ready to go, but they're just a little short on funds (around $13,000).

Man, all this talk about the Brule has really got me thinking about that river the past few days.  I've had so many great memories on the Brule over the years, from falling into the river on opening day with my Dad when I was in the 4th grade to helping people from all over the country land their first Steelhead, the river has been good to me, and I can only hope to return one of the many favors it has given me over the years.  Thanks to everybody who has rallied and helped organize the efforts.
