It’s no secret. We love the Menominee River and so do thousands of others that have experienced it with Tight Lines. To the extreme dismay of many, the river is currently under the threat of an 8 acre 750 foot deep open pit sulfide mine.

The implications of water contamination related to the mine would be absolutely devastating to the Menominee and surrounding land, air, and waters. American Rivers recently listed the Menominee among the top ten most endangered…Details

We are planning on having an technical review of the mining company’s Wetlands…Details
