F19 Meadow Creek spawning channel
BC Hydro built the Meadow Creek spawning channel in 1967 to compensate for lost natural Kokanee habitat due to the construction of Duncan Dam. The facility sustains Kootenay Lake Kokanee, which are the primary prey species for both Bull Trout and Gerrard Rainbow Trout.
