Proper stream habitat design will greatly increase a stream’s water quality, macro-invertebrate populations, sediment transport, and improve trout habitat, which in turn results in larger, healthier fish.
A large, sustainable trout population starts with trout habitat. Excellent trout habitat promotes a healthy ecosystem for organisms, as well.
