The Fly Rod Chronicles and WES Team Up in Colorado

2018

Recently, the Westervelt team met up with the team from The Fly Rod Chronicles to help viewers make the connection between healthy river systems and the sport that they love. Segments were filmed on different sections of river, including a Westervelt Restoration Project near La Salle, Colorado.

These pictures were taken at the confluence of the Big Thompson River and the South Platte River in Weld County, where Westervelt Ecological Services is currently developing a restoration project. Implementing a restoration project at a key confluence and preserving this project under a permanent conservation easement may have dramatic benefits to wildlife, fisheries, and ecological functions throughout the region. If you would like to know more about our project, please contact us and keep an eye out for this episode of The Fly Rod Chronicles on Pursuit TV during the 2019 season.
