F19 Hill Creek spawning channel

The Hill Creek spawning channel was built as compensation for the construction of Revelstoke Dam. It provides spawning habitat for Kokanee and Rainbow Trout from Arrow Lakes Reservoir. This project supports ongoing operations, maintenance, and monitoring at the channel, including Kokanee fry emigration, Rainbow Trout redd counts and fry emergence, adult Kokanee size, fecundity and escapement, overwinter egg survival, and water quality.
