Years of industrial mining at Mores and Grimes creeks has resulted in degraded fish habitats, and has greatly reduced the health of resident trout populations. In early 2008, Trout Unlimited set out to restore and improve the altered stream ecology with the installation of full spanning structures, stream channelization, riparian vegetation plantings, and flood plain creation. A seven year multiple-stakeholder restoration project addressed and implemented the actions necessary to remedy these habitat deficiencies. This project provides a detailed overview of the restoration efforts, documents the outcomes of the restoration, and seeks to determine how effective these restoration actions will be for future trout populations. We also address the longevity of the implemented restoration structures and their ability to withstand the processes of nature.
