A fisherman came into the office and reported a weir had been built across Coal Creek. This was blocking fish passage for spring spawning Westslope cutthroat trout up Coal Creek. It is a Federal offence in the Fisheries Act to prohibit fish passage and the ERA supports keeping the Elk River fishable for future generations. For fish to breed, they have to make it to their spawning grounds and larger fish need to make their way to the Elk River to live their life.
