In 2016, Trout and Salmon Foundation funded a Trout Unlimited project to connect more than 30 miles of brook trout habitat in the Peshtigo River watershed in Northern Wisconsin. Trout Unlimited recently highlighted the Peshtigo River project on its blog.
The project called for removing or replacing road culverts, including as many as 10 in 2017, to reconnect important spawning and rearing habitat to native brook trout and to restore natural sediment and nutrient transport resulting in improved instream habitat upstream. The project was led by Trout Unlimited and supported by U.S. Forest Service, National Fish and Wildlife Fund, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and Trout and Salmon Foundation. A local landowner was also instrumental in providing support to the project.
