Frog Hollow (Sullivan County, NY) is a stream with high water quality that supports spawning Brook Trout. Over the years, management of an upstream backwater-fed pond has led to the development of a barrier to fish seeking cold water refuge and spawning opportunities in Frog Hollow.
The completed project involved the removal of a dam that has been a barrier to aquatic passage on this tributary of Willowemoc Creek. The realignment of the intake and the removal and restoration of the barrier site now allows fish to access over three miles of high quality tributary habitat!
This project has reduced stream fragmentation in the watershed and allows fish and other aquatic species to move freely throughout their lifecycle and it will improve the fishing on Willowemoc Creek.
Kudos to our partners: Trout Unlimited, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, US Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Wildlife Program, and Bald Mountain Inc. for their great work!
