|HAPPY TROUT CHAPTERís mission is the enhancement of trout habitat along the West Arm of the Rocky Saugeen and the Barhead Creek through stream rehabilitation. We will also attend to water taking and water quality issues in the local watershed through political involvement. |
The chapter views the rehabilitation of the West Rocky Saugeen River as critical to the survival and proliferation of the regionís brook trout. Increased sediment, increased temperature and decreased flow have decreased water quality for the trout and inspired the chapter to combat this. Through their efforts at maintaining water temperature and removing sediment they have helped raise the waterís quality and hope to continue this to even greater ends.
