Improving Access to Dunkard Creek

fishing in Dunkard

Dunkard Creek holds tremendous potential as a venue for recreational activities such as paddling and fishing. We believe that such uses of the creek are beneficial in that they provide a recreation destination, both for residents and tourists, and these activities have tangible positive economic impacts on the community surrounding Dunkard Creek. Increased usage of the Creek should also help to elevate awareness of the unique values associated with Dunkard and increase community interest in protecting the Creek from the varied threats to water quality.

Friends of Dunkard Creek is currently in the process of identifying potential stream access points that could be utilized for fishing and boating. We are planning to increase stream access at these sites via improved contours, surface preparation, parking and signage.
