    While the fishing industry has worked diligently to improve their products it is still up to the angler to understand the threat, buy the gear, and implement the cleaning instructions. The Ausable River, known worldwide for its trout fishery and spectacular scenery, cannot afford to be impacted by unsightly or ecosystem changing invasives. The West Branch of the Ausable attracts $3.8 million dollars in fishing tourism annually and supports four fly shops and numerous private guides. For this reason the Ausable River Association employed a “River Steward” to educate anglers in the Ausable and encircling watersheds in order to spread the “Check-Clean-Dry” message. Note: data are included in report.
