    I believe that a highbanker with a pump is mechanically fed ( or considered that way)



    now if you were some way able to pipe say 100 yards of water to get enough head then you could say its stream fed maybe :D

    Just got an email back from the DNR on the issue,
    Hi Bob,
    Thank you for the email. You are going to need a permit. I am forwarding
    this email to one of our biologist, Jim Bales, who is out today but will
    return tomorrow. His direct phone number is.

    So looks like I will be getting a permit to play in the water

    Default Fish habitat permit

    Bob, on the fish habitat permit it states:
    "the suction dredge sall not be used for hibanking, off stream mining or water use activities ect." Im getting alot of conflicting stories from officials.

    Iv already submitted an EPA permit for discharge.

    The wife just picked up the Fish Habitat permit today and yes #4 says you can't use your dredge for highbanking. She also got a dredge permit as well. She talked with several people on using a highbanker and staying within the water line.Everyone she talked with gave different anwsers. Don't need a permit, Can use with permit, Can't use.
    I'll try the dredge in the Sixmile area and wait to use the highbanker in the Matsu area where the regs say I can.
    Confusing but at least I have a permit to play in the water.
