Syers Lake Dam Removal
If you happen to run across Syers Creek, tucked away in Lake County, you'll find a high quality coldwater stream with great habitat for brook trout and mottled sculpin. Follow this Little Manistee River tributary far enough upstream and you may find a dry streambed caused by a sand berm dam known as Syers Lake Dam. Created to provide vehicle access to adjacent private lands, the 120' long and 6' high berm restricts movement of aquatic life, increases sedimentation and elevates water temperatures.
Pine River - Silver Creek Project
The Pine River meanders northwest through northern Lower Michigan toward Tippy Pond where it joins the Manistee River. Its headwaters source their cold water from a series of spring-fed tributaries north of Luther. The Pine then makes an over 50-mile trek and drops over 400 ft. This river distinguishes itself among rivers in Lower Michigan with an acute drop in elevation, drawing attention to its steep banks and healthy habitat for wild resident salmonids including brook, brown and rainbow trout. The Pine River is protected under both the National Wild & Scenic Rivers Act and the Michigan Natural Rivers Program. What’s missing in the Pine River is instream habitat including what we call “large woody debris.”
