The Tryon River watershed, including Webster’s Pond, Craig’s Pond, and Ives Pond, lies within both Queens and Prince counties. Three major branches meet south of the TransCanada Highway before emptying into the Northumberland Strait. The river has historic runs of brook trout, gasperaux, and smelt, but salmon are no longer evident. Rainbow trout, an introduced species, is now common in the river.

The Tryon River Watershed Cooperative (TRWC) was founded in 1992 by a group of citizens concerned about the state of the Tryon River and the influx of sedimentation. It continues today as an active community group. 


The TRWC appoints a representative from the watershed to the SSWA board of directors.
