Westslope Cutthroat Trout Restoration Project Planned for Lick Lake, September 9-14

Fish & Wildlife - Region 1

Friday, August 31, 2012

The South Fork Flathead westslope cutthroat trout conservation program will continue this fall with rotenone treatment of Lick Lake during September 9 through 14, 2012. The purpose of this project is to remove nonnative trout and the threat they pose to westslope cutthroat trout in the South Fork drainage. Westslope cutthroat trout will be restocked in Lick Lake the following spring to reestablish the recreational fishery. During this project, Forest Trail #291 will be closed on the Spotted Bear District from the junction of Gordon Creek Trail #35.
