Migration Corridor Improvement
As of August 17, 2010 the NSSA has received all the necessary approvals to proceed with modifications to the river bed in the Current River. This small project will improve migration corridors during low water flows. The work will entail the removal of a small amount of rock on the cliff which will allow migrating fish another route to follow when ascending this partial barrier. Also, two logs will be installed between two of the pools upstream from the cliff in an effort to allow movement from pool to pool.
Work was completed on Saturday August 21, 2010.
