Chattahoochee River Wild Trout Improvement Project

Project Details

Crayfish Creek is a heavily impaired tributary of the Chattahoochee River where streambank erosion and lack of riparian canopy cover is degrading water quality within reach of the spawning habitat for wild brown trout. To ensure the River remains a productive coldwater fishery and healthy source of drinking water, the Chattahoochee River Wild Trout Improvement Project (Project) will focus on improving water quality and habitat along Crayfish Creek by restoring native riparian vegetation, removing non-native species, stabilizing eroded streambanks, and removing non-native debris which is altering stream hydrology and contributing to erosion issues.

Location: Please park at the large parking lot where the Georgia Highway 20 Bridge and Chattahoochee River intersect.
