Bowman-Haley Reservoir is a popular lake located along the western part of the North Dakota/South Dakota border. The lake was constructed in 1966 as a flood control and water supply reservoir. Although little of the water in the lake has been used for water supply, the lake became a popular recreation area due to a general lack of water-related activities available in the semiarid region. The lake initially had good water quality; however, as the lake aged, water quality declined. Suspended solids, excess nutrients and corresponding turbidity, excess algae growth, and low winter dissolved oxygen concentrations are the main concerns. Recreational use of the lake has also declined. The local Soil Conservation Service developed a plan to improve the water quality of the reservoir (Soil Conservation Service 1990) which primarily consists of reducing nonpoint source pollution through good agricultural land management. In addition, a 23-acre1 wetland was constructed in 1991 on Spring Creek with the dual purposes of water quality enhancement and creation of waterfowl nesting habitat. The wetland was constructed on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) lands upstream of the reservoir by the Bowman Slope Soil Conservation District and Ducks Unlimited.

- Strategies for selective trout in clear water - New patterns designed for spring creeks and how to fish them - Simple explanations of the major hatches on spring creeks across the country Spring creeks, those rare waters that flow right out of the earth--in whole or in part--are both a blessing and a curse for anglers. They are a blessing because the clear, cold, nutrient-rich waters grow abundant insects, which in turn grow and sustain large populations of healthy trout. They flow free of ice in the winter and run cool during the hottest parts of summer, providing year-round angling. In many ways, this bounty becomes a curse, because the abundance and steady supply of food can spoil the trout, making them less likely to take a piece of fluff and feathers. Many spring creeks are also small, their challenges enhanced by weed-choked runs and tricky currents.Mike Heck, expert fly tier and guide from southcentral Pennsylvania, the cradle of American spring-creek country, shares the tactics and techniques he teaches his clients to catch these tough trout. Heck includes his top fly patterns, tips on matching the major hatches of Tricos, Baetis, and Sulphurs (PMDs), and his thoughts on stealth and presentation. Whether you fish Letort Spring Run in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, or DePuy's Spring Creek in Livingston, Montana, Heck's Spring Creek Strategies will help you become a more successful angler.

Spring Creek Reward is the third trout book by Jay Ford Thurston, and his second book devoted to fishing wild trout in spring creeks. Spring creeks are those rare and special streams rich in minerals dissolved from limestone. So where there is limestone bedrock you will find the best trout streams in the world. After seventy one years of trout fishing any angler should have some good trout secrets to write about. However, what enables Jay to write with credence are the records he has been keeping since 1975. For every stream fished, he has recorded information on the length of each trout caught over ten inches long. Also recorded was time of day each trout was caught, weather conditions, water temperature, water turbidity, lure used, and where each trout was caught in the stream In, 2013, when he put facts and figures to the task, he discovered July is the best time to catch trout over seventeen inches long, not March or April, in the Driftless Region of Southwestern Wisconsin. He writes about where and when to fish trout, making sense to anglers when they read Spring Creek Reward. And they will probably wonder, as Jay often has, "Why didn't I figure that out years ago?" Jay writes about more than trout. His research reveals the power of nature to heal the body and how fishing trout leads to enjoying the good life. There is some duplication in the book regarding water temperature and fishing under cloud cover, but it's intentional. Those two factors are so very important I presented them in more than one way so you would remember. Spring Creek Reward has the potential to do more than help you enjoy trout fishing and catch more trout it could change your life forever.
