2011 Trash Pick Up Challenge

Post by lswoody »

Right after church service let out tonite, I ran to a nearby lake and thought for sure I'd catch some fish but didn't, but I did pick up a good bit of trash. This next pic up, I got this bag of trash while on a camping trip Fri evening/ Sat. This 3rd pic from the bottom is what I picked up on the river bank before we casted off for a 6 hr float/fish trip on the river yesterday.

I thought I'd post this to encourage everyone. I took my nephew out on Friday and we didn't catch anything...unfortunately I forgot to bring a bag, but someone thoughtfully left their plastic bag as trash, so I filled it up and we hauled it away. I can definitely tell the difference that I haven't been down there in a while, the trash has piled up like nobody's business.

Walked about a mile of my favorite water last night walking the boat up through some widow makers (lots of aluminum on the boulders). Picked up this junk along my path.

I did see a big water heater in a deeper hole but it was too heavy, I think it was full of mud or sand.

I've been doing this for a while. Its amazing the piles I pick up. But it's a great feeling leaving an area clean.

Keep it up!

I too have for years carried a trash bag and cleaned up wherever I am fishing... I once got permission from a gentlleman that saw what I was doing to fish his private lake. It was a great spot and I always shared my catch with him...That was many years ago but my point being you never know what good will come of your effort...Our Missouri Clean Stream groups do a great job and any of you from Mo that aren't already hooked up with them should give them some help.
Peace

You can count me in... we will be floating a couple of beautiful Ozark streams and like most of you it discusts me to see trash along side the rivers....Our best trash outing so far was a large black garbage sack full of beer cans, soday bottles, empty worm containers, you know..It always makes a body feel good to clean a place up that is being littered upon.
Good contest. Thanks

I know the contest is over, but check out what I "cleaned up" last week while fishing!

Image

I called the local police department and escorted some firefighters out to the site by the river to have it removed. I think some kids were sneaking down to the river and huffing the stuff.

(P.S. ...and I joke here...I noticed some giggly firefighters too, soon after wards.)
