Future Fisheries applications are considered every year in June and December. The following are all of the applications that were received for the upcoming funding cycle.

010-2016 Future Fisheries Long Creek Draft EA

010-2016 Future Fisheries Long Creek Draft EA

The FFIP is proposing to provide partial funding to a project intending to restore the West Fork Gallatin River stream channel and isolate the adjacent Little Coyote and Silver Bow ponds, which would improve fish habitat and angling opportunities. The West Fork Gallatin River is a tributary to the Gallatin River, located near Big Sky in Gallatin County.

Hells Canyon Instream Flow Draft Environmental Assessment

Hells Canyon Instream Flow Draft Environmental Assessment

Hells Canyon Creek (Madison County) is a tributary to the Jefferson River and supports spawning populations of brown and rainbow trout. Flow monitoring in the area indicated dewatering due to irrigation demand, and this project aims to lease water and secure minimum flows for trout. In this project, three water users are combined to a single gravity pipeline providing 1.12 cfs of water savings. Guaranteed minimum flows during rainbow trout spawning ( April 1 to July 15) is 1.60 cfs, and the minimum flow 0.25 cfs will be maintained during trout fry migration (July 16 to November 4). The goal of this project is to protect and enhance trout habitat by securing additional water for instream flow. This lease was implemented from 1996-2015, and this proposal for a 3 year renewal is to prepare for a long term lease prior to 2019. This EA was created as part of the Future Fisheries Improvement Program.
