Coldwater River Habitat Restoration Project

The Steelhead Society of BC (SSBC) has undertaken fish habitat restoration and enhancement projects within the Thompson River watershed in 2012 and 2013 and plans to complete a third in 2014. The purpose of each of these projects is to improve spawning and rearing habitat for Thompson River steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in accordance with the SSBC’s mandate and direction from the SSBC Board of Directors. 

The Coldwater River Habitat Restoration project is a project on the Eaton-Beaton Channel, which is confluent with the Coldwater River near Merritt, BC. The Coldwater River is one of the main spawning and rearing streams for Thompson River steelhead
