Invasive Species River Steward
Ausable River Association (2011). Invasive Species River Steward (Final Report). Grand Isle, VT: Lake Champlain Basin Program.
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 and spread the “Check-Clean-Dry” message.
