Beaver ponds in Southeastern trout streams are usually detrimental to trout. They warm the water often to excessive levels and cause silt to build up in the streams which hurts spawning habitat. I know of one stream where they have caused considerable decreases in trout populations and another where the trout seem to be gone completely. The latter stream had multiple ponds and a very large population of beavers.
