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.
Winter Work on the Little Manistee
In early February, CRA was back out on the Little Manistee River to install additional instream habitat. Joined by CRA’s partners Kanouse Outdoor Restoration and InterFluve, we were able to get some great work done while the ground was still frozen.

Some Like it Cold – Conserving Coldwater Habitat

From the big open water of our Great Lakes to the secluded creeks of our headwaters, we are lucky to have a vast array of freshwater habitats. Some fish like bass, whitefish and pike thrive in our big lakes. Others like our brook trout depend on our coldwater streams. Keeping these habitats in balance is critical for a diverse fishery.

Big Happenings on the Little Manistee

Our staff has had their feet on the ground in the Little Manistee Watershed inventorying erosion sites and scouting sites for instream habitat. An updated erosion inventory will soon be completed and available along with all of our watershed inventory data at www.northernmichiganstreams.org
