Other Comments: New Zealand mud snails have been confirmed in this section of the Green. This exotic species competes for the same food as insects which then displaces the insects that trout feed on. In order to prevent spreading these invaders to other waters, wash all equipment with bleach and allow it to completely dry (drying and freezing seem to kill them) before entering other waters.
