Bass Lake Creek

Manitoulin Streams worked with the Little Current Fish and Game Club to improve salmon and trout habitat at the upper reach of Bass Lake Creek. A hydraulic hammer was used to expand a pool and 9 yards of spawning gravel was placed inside to create a spawning pool. Sweeper logs that were washed downstream with high water flows were also replaced with boulders. Passage upstream was created with spawning channels as well.

Mindemoya River

Dredged the mouth of the Mindemoya River with the help of the Municipality of Central Manitoulin this morning so that migrating salmon could make it upstream to spawn. We’ve heard lots of positive comments this year about the fishery improving by doing this over the past 4 years. A sand bar builds up blocking access due to wave action and it causes a trickle of water from the river (2-3 inches) over the sand for the salmon to try to cross. This was causing salmon to become beached on the sand. The dredging seems to be working!

M’Chigeeng Creek Rehabiliation

A fabulous job completed by Lakeview students, two youth ranger groups and Manitoulin Streams. Large and mid size boulders, spawning gravel and garbage removal was completed the week of Aug 18, 2014.

All work was done by hand and not with the complete cooperation of the weather, but a job well done! This Community now awaits the fall salmon spawning in this rehabilitated habitat. A big thanks to Bob Florean for all his help with this project!

James Creek

 

James Creek had an issue with the access to the creek being blocked by gravel/sand at the mouth of the Creek. We removed the blocked entrance and then added some boulders and rocks along the corner bend to help scour the mouth open so that migrating salmon and trout will be able to access the creek.
