Return Of Batten Kill Trout

The plans to restore populations of Batten Kill trout, in the famous Vermont river of the same name, is working. Over the last 4 years conservation officials have been creating artificial refuges for the trout. By adding logs and carefully-placed blow-downs in the stream the trout population has grown five fold since 2005. Over the past decade the decline in the trout population has been attributed to destruction of their natural habitat.
