Unfortunately that's not what's going to happen... God knows there aren't any good Bass Lakes in Polk or St Croix County... Oh, wait, there's a ton that hardly get fished!

There's plenty of real lakes in Wisconsin without having to dam up a trout stream. Happens far too often. On the bright side many have been removed in the last 15 years. I fished a stretch of stream recently that had a dam removed about 10 years ago, the fishing was amazing and the area has recovered completely from being a stagnant, pointless pond.

I would think that over time the river channel will cut in a bit more and narrow it up. Looks good to me so far. It will only get better over time if left alone.

Won't be left alone because people need their artificial bass lake back. God knows there's no other natural lakes in Wisconsin you can fish.

There are literally probably 2 dozen good Bass fisheries within an hours drive of WRSP. Bass Lake, Perch Lake, Balsam, Deer, St. Croix, Miss, Lake Pepin... Just to name maybe 25%... It makes absolutely no sense... Remove those 2 dams and that river would attract people from across both states...
