A collaborative effort will result in a better habitat for trout in the Straight River south of Park Rapids.

Minnesota Trout Unlimited, Straight River Trust Committee and Department of Natural Resources Fish and Wildlife and Forestry divisions spent this week placing structures made of trees in the river to move the water current.


Much of the funding comes from the state Legacy grant but each entity has contributed.
