An increase of almost 500% in the numbers of small to medium sized trout in the project area has been documented. Vist the VT Fish and Wildlife website, click on Fisheries Programs, then Batten Kill, then Reports and Documents, then look for “Twin Rivers Habitat Enhancement Assessment” or contact BKWA for a paper copy. This is the scientific evidence that tends to show that the lack of cover and shelter has been a limiting factor in trout habitat. It confirms the usefulness and validity of all of our efforts in both NY and VT.
