In the late 1990s, this site was identified by the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources as one of the most important salmon pools on Salmon River and, as a result, was provided additional riparian protection. With two cold water streams entering the area within 100 metres of each other, this pool remains relatively cool during the summer, and the deeper water provides fish protection from avian predators like osprey. While salmon returns to the river have dwindled over the years, the site remains critical for another cold-water species, brook trout, and as such, it remains an important spot within our Conservation program.
