I just came across this on another fishing board. I can't even digest how bad the Skuke used to be. Amazing story of what happened and what it took to clean it up along with a lot of history and old photos and letters.
Crazy shit. That sediment filled 90 percent of the river and the banks and only the top 1-3 feet was water. I had no idea it was that bad. And this is for almost the entire hundred plus miles. That is a shit load of dredging. I am shocked the river looks as good as it does now.
