Won’t fishing be ruined?

Our goal is to improve fishing by providing increased habitat, structure, more gravel, diverse flows and a varied river bottom. The migrating fish would hold better before moving upriver and local populations of walleye and bass will flourish. Over the last 160 years, tons of boulders have been removed and the river bottom today is flat. Often the best structure is a dangerous low head dam. The river could provide a much higher quality fishing experience, like the St. Mary’s River in the Soo that sees an annual economic benefit of at least $7 million dollars generated from fishing.
