TROUT POPULATION TRENDS IN THE RESTORATION ERA
restoration, trout, Clark Fork River, Silver Bow Creek
The upper Clark Fork River and Silver Bow Creek were once too polluted to support trout populations. Improvements in water quality allowed trout to establish, but numerous human impacts still limit these populations. Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks have been monitoring trout populations in the upper Clark Fork for 50 years. Nathan will talk about how FWP’s monitoring data is being used to inform and evaluate restoration actions.
