Restoration Projects Underway

The KWRC staff are now planting trees, building brush piles, erecting fences, and installing willow stakes to improve various habitats within our watershed.  Our summer students installed a number of willow stakes in early June to stabilize some lightly eroding stream banks.  We have also planted more than 6,000 trees along degraded stream banks and have another 8,000+ to go.  The brush piles we are building will provide habitat for migratory birds and small mammals and add another valuable component to the riparian areas and flood plains we work to enhance.

Fly Fishing Workshop A Huge Success!!

Our annual "Beginner's Fly Fishing Workshop" was a great success and we have to thank all of our project partners for once again stepping up on this great event.  Twenty people were introduced to the sport of fly fishing over two nights and many caught their first fish ever on fly rods.  Thanks to the NB Wildlife Trust Fund, the NB Environmental Trust Fund, PotashCorp, the Atlantic Salmon Federation, the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation, and the Sussex Fish and Game Association for their ongoing support of this fun event.

Don't Forget To Fill out Your Creel Surveys

The KWRC encourages anglers to practice "Catch and release" fishing and be sure to understand the regulations and restrictions for the water you are fishing.  For information on fishing rules in NB check out the Department of Natural Resources Fish NB Guide.

The KWRC is also trying to gather information on the health of our fish population and we are hoping anglers can help us with that.  If you are out fishing or know someone who is, share our creel survey link with them.  This will help us make strong management decisions regarding our recreational fisheries.
