Big Wood River Study Guides Restoration Work by Trout Unlimited

Trout Unlimited and Wood River Land Trust recently released the results of their Big Wood River research project. The research project will guide future restoration decisions on the Big Wood River and is an excellent example of the type of research that supports many of the in-stream projects that receive grants from the Trout and Salmon Foundation.

In 2015, TSF made a grant to Trout Unlimited to support the first phase of the Big Wood River restoration project. Chris Chorney, TU’s Big Wood River Project Manager, told the Idaho Mountain Express, the first potential project to be identified using the study is to stabilize streambanks on an approximately half-mile section just upstream from the Big Wood River bridge north of St. Luke’s hospital.
