Default Re: stream habitat

If you are far up enough, fine gravel beds will help with spawning.
Digging some back waters with a minamal flow into them (a small trickle) will create safe habitat for the fingerlings which will improve surival rates.

obsticals that give them somewhere too hide like over hanging trees hollow rocks/logs, good native weed beds (you may need to controll growth so that you can take advantage of the hatchs) This will encrouge resident fish


Good luck with the restoration
