LONGMONT -- State wildlife biologist Ben Swigle said that most of the Longmont-area fish population rode out September's floods just fine, according to a recent survey.

For that, he said, fisherman can thank the trees along the St. Vrain River and its nearby ponds.

"Areas (that) held their own in the midst of the rampage were densely vegetated with mature tree stands," Swigle said. Trout and other fish found shelter in those areas while the flood raged through the main channel, he said.
