Mikemansker, I'd guess the actual Oak species would make a difference. Our Pin Oak don't usually lose their leaves in the fall. Our Red and White Oak do. I noticed in the compost pile those Pin Oak leaves can take a very long time to break down as well.

I live on a flood plain with a small creek on one side of our property and a larger stream on the other side. We have floods every year. So I understand exactly what your talking about with leaves and debris on the upstream side of trees. I usually look there for trout fishing worms if I run out while fishing.

I put a sticky note on the bin to remind me when to feed them next and where I fed them last. I have lots of other things going on an would other wise forget. Still a worm wrangling virgin here.
