Trout Stream Therapy is a fully illustrated field guide to improving trout habitat in streams damaged by human activities associated with agriculture, forestry, and urbanization. Over the past four decades state and federal resource management agencies in the midwestern region have devised, tested, and refined a variety of techniques intended to restore healthy living conditions for trout. Leading the way in this regional effort has been the innovative and aggressive program of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resouces. Robert L. Hunt, during his thirty-three years as a research biologist with the Wisconsin DNR, has carried out many of the pioneering field evaluations of the techniques developed to reestablish healthy wild trout populations and improve the sport fisheries that depend on those populations. Trout Stream Therapy provides twenty-one of the most up-to-date, successful, field-tested techniques applicable not only to midwestern streams, but also to physically similar streams elsewhere in the United States and in other countries. Professional fisheries biologists and administrators responsible for rehabilitating trout habitats will find this manual an invaluable reference in the field and in the office. The many sketches and color photographs illustrating these techniques will be particularly helpful to those who are interested in restoring trout streams but lack scientific training.

A beautiful tribute to twenty rivers restored by the work of Trout Unlimited and its members. We all love rivers and the trout that the best of them hold. For fifty years, the volunteers of Trout Unlimited have strived to restore, sustain, and preserve the nation's trout and salmon waters. Weaving together human and natural histories, Ross tells the stories of twenty watersheds where Trout Unlimited has labored to save rivers damaged by human shortsightedness. From Michigan's Au Sable to New York's Delaware to rivers in California, Washington, and more, the stories of these rivers—both in peril and in recovery—will remind fishermen why they love the sound of running water, and why our natural resources need to be protected. 200 color photographs.

With $2 billion spent annually on stream restoration worldwide, there is a pressing need for guidance in this area, but until now, there was no comprehensive text on the subject. Filling that void, this unique text covers both new and existing information following a stepwise approach on theory, planning, implementation, and evaluation methods for the restoration of stream habitats. Comprehensively illustrated with case studies from around the world, Stream and Watershed Restoration provides a systematic approach to restoration programs suitable for graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses on stream or watershed restoration or as a reference for restoration practitioners and fisheries scientists.
