Improving Connectivity for Reintroduced Native Brook Trout in Trail Fork of Big Creek, Cocke County, TN

Project Leader Organization Improving Connectivity for Reintroduced Native Brook Trout in Trail Fork of Big Creek, Cocke County, TN. Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation (TWRF), in partnership with Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA), Trout Unlimited (TU) and Cherokee National Forest (CNF) will remove and replace a double culvert crossing on Trail Fork of Big Creek (Trail Fork), Cocke County, TN with a structure that allows full aquatic organism passage. This replacement will create 2.5 miles of connected stream and support the reintroduction of native brook trout. This will restore native brook trout to Trail Fork, which is located in a catchment where they were previously extirpated, while also improving connectivity for the restored population.
