Abstract

This article examines the long-term effects of bank-cover deflectors on the physical fish habitat and on the channel morphology. The study was conducted on Lawrence Creek, where trout habitat had been affected negatively by intense cattle grazing. Data on the physical habitat and on channel morphology were collected on a 600-m-long reach in 1963 (immediately prior to the rehabilitation work), in 1966, and in 1999, to evaluate the adjustments. In the morainic section, most structures are no longer efficient and the channel is unstable. The success of the rehabilitation is therefore conditioned by the physical context of the river
