The attached Decision Notice has been prepared for proposed improvements to streambank stability and grayling habitat quality along the Big Hole River near the town of Wisdom, MT. The fluvial Arctic grayling population in the upper Big Hole watershed is threatened by low quality habitat and low instream flows. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is proposing a project to stabilize streambanks and enhance grayling habitat along approximately 140 feet of the Big Hole River. No public comments were received during a 30-day comment period ending July 3, 2009.
It is my decision to proceed with the proposed project with no changes to the Draft Environmental Assessments.
