Fisherman Help Clean Estero Bay Islands

If you use the resource, It’s nice to give something back. That was the mission for a group of fly fishermen on Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve. Members of the Backcountry Fly Fishers set out early in kayaks and skiffs to work the shoreline and clear monofilament fishing line and trash from the mangroves. Before venturing out on the cleanup, they checked with the aquatic preserve office to identify islands in need and that were inactive for rookery nesting. The data collected my the group – shoreline covered and materials collected – helps the aquatic preserve staff with rookery monitoring efforts.
