Stephanie Schmidt, Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies & Biology at St. Olaf, alerted me to today’s late morning effort to remove the fish that got trapped in downtown’s Riverwalk during the flooding.

Many of the trapped fish are carp, which are non-native and generally nasty fish for our waters.  We’re unsure of what else has escaped to the calmer waters. It will be interesting to see. Anyway, if we end up moving fish, it might be a neat opportunity for you to get some more photos.  Some of these carp are monsters.

Stephanie was prepared to use a ‘barge shocker’ but nets were enough to do the job.

I’ll have a short video of the operation later today but in the meantime, see my album of 18 photos, the large slideshow, or this small slideshow.

Robbie and I got of tour of the flooded area from the air yesterday afternoon, courtesy of Northfielder and Delta pilot Mark Carson and his wife Alice.  Mark’s dad, Phil, flew his plane up from Iowa to the Faribault airport, where the four of us then took off with Mark at the controls. We then spent about an hour zooming above Northfield and Dundas.

I have a couple hundred photos and some video but for now, see the album of 18 photos (photos of downtown, Carleton’s Laird Field, the Waterford bridges, and Memorial Field in Dundas), the large slideshow, or this small slideshow:
