The decline of WCT throughout their historic range is well documented. It is the Montana State Fish and a Species of Special Concern. Genetically pure WCT are thought to occupy about 5-13% of their historic range in the Missouri River system and most individual populations occupy less than six miles of habitat (Shepard et al. 1997). The conversion from stocking rainbow trout (RB) Oncorhynchus mykiss to WCT is being proposed to provide a fishery for this native fish in Wood Lake. Although not native to this drainage, WCT are native to this locale. Stocked WCT have produced excellent fisheries in other lakes in Montana. (Species Stocking - 01/13/2006)
