The Puntzi Creek Watershed was selected by Tsi Del Del Enterprises Ltd for a Level 1 Fish Habitat Assessement based on the results of an Overview Fish Habitat Assessment on the watershed. Local stakeholders have expressed concerns that the fishery in Puntzi Lake has been deteriorating due to changes in the hydrological conditions of the watershed, increased sedimentation from roadside erosion, and excessive beaver activity. The Overview Assessment identified sub-basins 1, 2, and the northeast corner of subbasin 3 as hight priorities for rehabilitation efforts and recommended that a Level 1 Fish Habitat Assessment be completed on the priority subbasins. Previous work on Puntzi Creek includes fish inventories, clearing of obstructions (beaver dams and debris), and annual breaching of beaver dams to facilitate rainbow trout spawning.
