Grouse Reach of the Vermilion River, Montana

October 2023 (approx.)

Detailed Description

Figure 2. Example of conditions prior to restoration in the unrestored Grouse Reach (year 0) of the Vermilion River, Montana: the absence of pool features related to a lack of in-channel woody debris, an adjacent riparian area void of mature trees and vegetation for recruitment, and an overall unstable streambank without the needed roughness to capture flood-deposited fine materials.
