Shrigley Creek Habitat Restoration and Enhancement 2019

<< Back to project list

Manitoulin Streams worked with a landowner interested in restoring and enhancing some of the rainbow trout and salmon habitat on Shrigley Creek. Dave Holla from Holla Engineering & Environmental Inc. came out and surveyed the creek to create a site design to improve the fishery. Shrigley Creek was identified as one of our top 10 streams that would provide the best return with stream restoration and enhancement thereby increasing salmonid populations. Last summer we conducted stream invertebrate and fisheries assessments with Laurentian University and College Boreal at this site to gather baseline data.

The following in-stream habitat was completed at this site:
(90) 4-foot boulders
(149) 3-foot boulders
835 ft3 broken rock
31 cubic yards limestone blocks
534 cubic yards of spawning gravel

Nearest city or town: Spring Bay, ON
Project start date: August 8, 2019
End date: September 30, 2019

Project focus: Combination of Education, Restoration, and Monitoring
Project contact: Seija Deschenes
