Eel River – South Fork Restoration II

Restoration Stories

Woodman Creek

After seven years of planning and preparation, the Woodman Creek Fish Passage Project, a tributary of the Eel River is completed. Crews removed the railroad embankment that buried the mouth of Woodman Creek. This opened access to 14 miles of prime salmon and steelhead spawning and rearing habitat for the first time in over a century. This project supported 33 quality local jobs, putting $2.2 million into the local economy while providing significant ecological benefits to the region. Learn more here and here© California Trout
