In this episode I am hanging out with Kentucky Fisheries Biologist, David Baker, where we discuss the recent low head dam removal project on Elkhorn Creek at the Jim Beam plant as well as future dam removal projects in the state. Low head dams are being removed all over the country not just due to the dangers they pose to the public, but also to help restore streams to their natural state. We answer questions some may have regarding the removal as well as what anglers can expect to see in that section of creek in the future. These low head dams can be very dangerous and every year we read about people drowing due to the deceptive current these dams produce. Be safe! Wear your PFD! And as always...Love your neighbor and go catch some fish! Episode cover photo credit - Adam White
