File Troff document Smith Creek Headwaters Restoration, VA_FY06 Project
The Smith Creek headwaters restoration project restored riparian and upland pastures to bottomland and upland forests in an area with several spring habitats that provide critical spawning, rearing and late summer temperature refuge habitats for Brook Trout. The restored habitat connects to a small isolated Brook Trout population found upstream on protected National Forest land (Mountain Run).

File Troff document Big Run Restoration, WV_FY06 Project
The Big Run project is part of Trout Unlimited’s Home Rivers Initiative Potomac Headwaters Restoration Project. The Forest Service, Trout Unlimited and others teamed up to fence the riparian zone, create crossings and alternative water sources to completely remove cattle from the stream. Over time, riparian reforestation will stabilize banks and provide vital shade during warm summer months. The project also included informational and educational kiosks and trails that improved access for anglers and hikers.

File Troff document Cooper Creek Restoration, GA_FY06 Project
This project restored over 1.6 miles of Southern Appalachian Brook Trout habitat contained within the Cooper Creek Watershed of the Chattahoochee National Forest, GA. Habitat in Bryant Creek and Pretty and Burnett Branches were restored using only hand labor to minimize soil disturbance. After non-native trout species were removed, trees were cut into and across the various stream reaches to provide in-stream cover and create pool habitat for Brook Trout and other aquatic species.
