Trout Habitat and Migration Study

trout monitoring

This study has been going on for several years and started in 2013 is a continuation of Middle Fork Habitat Study.  This study studies the movement patterns of fish between Spinney  Reservoir and the Middle Fork. They are using specialized RFID (Radio  Frequency Identification) equipment to monitor fish movement. The RFID  stations were installed after being modified to use solar power. The  first year many stations were damaged because of flooding. This study  provides data on fish movement and whether specific stream improvements really work.
