Dredged rivers rapidly fill with silt and reeds.The WTT carry out projects to create natural, self-cleansing channels and good trout habitat.

The Wild Trout Trust stimulates hands-on, in-the-water projects, helping others to help themselves with habitat improvement in and around rivers and lakes. Any individual or organisation caring for a wild trout population, anywhere in the UK or Ireland, can call on the Trust for practical help, advice and support.
