Montana's spectacular trout streams and lakes are legendary across the nation. One of the most important parts of this wonderful resource is Montana's largest native trout: the bull trout. Bull trout have declined across their range. Agencies and citizens have united across the west to help conserve this important part of our native heritage in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, as well as in Montana.
If we want to conserve bull trout and high quality aquatic habitat, we must inform and educate ourselves. The Bull Trout Identification Program provides you with an educational tool that can help you conserve bull trout for future generations. If anglers can effectively identify bull trout and learn about their importance, bull trout will benefit.
