HARRY & LAURA NOHR CHAPTER OF TROUT UNLIMITE: Blue River/Big Rock Branch Project

The Harry and Laura Nohr Chapter of Trout Unlimited will undertake River Management Project for trout stream restoration along approximately 1700 feet of the Blue River and Big Rock Branch in Grant and Iowa Counties. The goal is to reduce erosion and siltation to improve water quality, improve substrate quality, and provide more cover for trout. Project deliverables are as follows: 1.) Tapering eroding banks with a goal of 8:1 where possible and armoring the toe, 2.) creating weirs to narrow the flow and create holes, 3.) Using root wads to create structure, 4.) Build and install hides/cribs/lunker structures in critical points, 5.) Increase and improve gravel riffle areas, 6.) Seed and mulch disturbed soil with grass mixes, 7.) Install structures as outlined in the grant application, table of structures, 8.) Provide pre-restoration and post-restoration photos taken at several locations on each stream.
