Brook Trout Restoration Lynn Camp Prong, Great Smokey Mountain National Park, Tennessee
The purpose of the project is to continue to restore the Southern Appalachian brook trout to a larger lower elevation stream within its historic range in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. To date, park biologists have restored 17.2 miles of historic range for brook trout. The successful completion of this project will add 8 miles to this total.

Indian Stream Fish Habitat Restoration Project, New Hampshire
The goals of this project are to complete an aerial survey, conduct a detailed geomorphic and habitat assessment, and conduct riparian plantings on Indian Stream in New Hampshire. Restoration efforts will result in sustainable brook trout populations in Indian Stream and increased populations of brook trout in the mainstem of the Upper Connecticut River.

Sevier Road Crossing Stream Restoration in the Nine Mile Creek Watershed, New York
This project will restore fish passage across the Sevier Road crossing and reconnect over 1.5 miles of brook trout habitat in an unnamed tributary to Nine Mile Creek. Project objectives are to restore channel stability and habitat function to 250 linear feet of stream using natural channel design and evaluate brook trout population response to stream channel and fish passage restoration.

Wallacks Branch of Bob's Creek Fish Habitat Improvement Project
This project will remove five jack dams and install five single or multi- log vanes. Removal of the jack dams will provide improve fish migration and impact seven miles of stream. The construction of the log vanes will ensure that the trout have suitable habitat to thrive.

Casselman River Watershed AMD Remediation Project, MD
This project will restore water quality in the Casselman River in Maryland by constructing an acid mine drainage treatment system along affected tributaries in the watershed. Restoration of the water quality will support the biological health of the Casselman and allow the recolonization and repopulation of native brook trout to the 20 mile river.

Assessing the Efficacy of Remediating Episodic Low pH concentrations in Headwater Brook Trout Streams with Clam Shell Additions, Maine
This project will assess if clam shell additions will increase in-stream pH and decrease organic aluminum concentrations in headwater brook trout streams in Maine. Two tributaries included in this study currently do not sustain fish, even though they contain high quality habitat for fish. The likely reason for fish absence is thought to be low pH and subsequently high aluminum. The clam shell industry in Maine currently pays for discarding shells shucked at processing facilities. If this project is successful, it would allow us to use a waste product to help remediate low pH and subsequent high labial aluminum issues in brook trout streams.

Restoring Stream Habitat Connectivity in WB Machias, Maine
The primary threat to brook trout in the WB Machias River is associated with the aging road network. Project SHARE and the MEFRO have recently completed a basin wide stream-road crossing and fisheries assessment in the WB Machias River. There are 41 fish bearing road crossings in the subbasin that limit aquatic habitat connectivity. To date, six barrier removals / renovations have been completed. This project will remove another six barriers in the WB Machias in Maine.

Umpire Brook Culvert Replacement, Vermont
Umpire Brook is a small second order stream in the town of Victory, Vermont. It sustains a wild brook trout population and its watershed is almost entirely forested, with nearly the entire watershed falling within the Victory State Forest. Other than the limited runoff from forest roads, the only significant human-induced impact on this brook is a culvert on Umpire Brook Road. The goal of this project is to replace the current culvert with a bridge that will allow for upstream passage of fish and require less maintenance.

North River Stream Channel Restoration, Augusta County, Virgina
This project will advance restoration on a 0.75 mile reach of North River in Augusta County, Virginia, within the George Washington National Forest. The purpose of the immediate project is to install a series of cross-vein and J-structure in-stream devices to stabilize flows and to create and maintain low water pools that will serve as essential brook trout habitat during droughts and seasonal low flow periods. It continues a long-term program to restore pool habitat to a historically important brook trout fishery.

Restoring Habitat Connectivity in the Bob's Creek Watershed, Pennsylvania
The purpose of this project is to improve brook trout habitat connectivity in the Bobbs Creek watershed on the Allegheny National Forest. To accomplish this, two road crossings will be replaced with single open-bottom culverts. Also, this project will reduce flooding potential on the USFS road 116 and reduce the delivery of sediment to the stream through improved surfacing of the road.
