TUCPCC salmon habitat maintenance, rehabilitation & management planning 2020

Recipient: Trout Unlimited Canada Prince County Chapter
Approved Amount: $25,000

This project will focus on clearing out major blockages created from blow downs from hurricane Doiron. All three Atlantic salmon rivers in the TUCPCC watersheds, Trout River, Leard’s Pond, Caruthers from Bloomfield Park upstream past the Smallman Road crossing to Knutsford, and Cain’s from MacAuslands upstream to the Jerry Road will require this kind of work. If time allows clearing of alder choked areas will receive some attention as well. The goal is to address approximately 15 km during June 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

The 2020 project will include stream channel work to establish floodplain access during flood events in the MacAusland’s Pond basin. The work will assist the existing stream to establish proper stream form, meander pattern that will naturally result in salmon habitat creation. The floodplain work will support adjustments that the stream is already trying to make.
