The enclosed Decision Notice has been prepared for three Environmental Assessments including: Cherry Creek Westslope Cutthroat Trout Restoration, Removal of Nonnative Brook Trout and Hybridized Cutthroat Trout with Rotenone in Dyce Creek, and McVey Creek Westslope Cutthroat Trout Restoration. These proposals include construction of fish migration barriers on Cherry Creek (near Melrose) and McVey Creek (near Wisdom), using rotenone to remove nonnative trout from the project areas on Cherry Creek, McVey Creek and Dyce Creek (near Polaris), and reintroducing WCT from various sources. Eighteen written public comments were received during the 30-day EA review period (ending on May 24, 2011). An additional 5 comments were received within several days after the identified comment period, but these comments were accepted as official comments. Ten individuals attended the informational public meeting in Dillon, MT, and 9 attended the public meeting in Butte, MT. Based on the Environmental Assessment, public comment, and the need to conserve westslope cutthroat trout in the Upper Missouri River drainage in SW Montana, it is my decision to proceed with the proposed westslope cutthroat trout projects in the Cherry, Dyce and McVey creek drainages.

An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to propose the introduction of fertilized westslope cutthroat trout eggs from York Gulch into a currently fishless private pond on York Ranch. This introduction would conserve the few remaining cutthroat trout left in York Gulch, rear them in the pond, allow them to spawn, and use the progeny to restock York Gulch and other waters.
