 The state fish of Virginia is the brook trout, a native species that requires cold waters.  In this presentation titled "Stream Temperatures as a Guide to Restoring Habitat for Virginia's State Fish," Dr. Thomas Benzing of James Madison University will describe his current research on water temperatures in Shenandoah Valley streams including the South River.  For the past seven years, Dr. Benzing has monitored and analyzed stream temperatures for the purpose of guiding collaborative efforts to restore trout habitat and manage a recreational fishery on the South River in Waynesboro and Augusta County.
