This project will stabilize the stream banks to improve water and substrate quality for brown and brook trout and other cold-water species. Project deliverables include: 1.) Tapering eroding banks with a goal of 8:1 where possible and armoring the toe, 2.) Installing habitat devices to enhance trout population size and structure, 3.) Using root wads to create structure where possible, 4.) building and installing bank hides/cribs/lunker structures in critical points, 5.) Increasing and improving gravel riffle areas where conditions allow, 6.) Seeding and mulching disturbed soil with grass mixes.
