It used to look like a ditch beside a walking trail in a Thunder Bay park, but now it's being transformed into an improved spawning ground for brook trout.

The North Shore Steelhead Association is continuing its rehabilitation project on a creek located within Centennial Park.

The second phase of the project is underway and Gord Ellis went to George Creek to check out the progress.

The CBC outdoor columnist spoke with Superior Morning host, Lisa Laco, about the work being done on this tiny tributary of the Current River.
