The Future Fisheries Improvement Program is proposing to provide partial funding to a project calling for enhancing habitat complexity along a 0.7-mile reach of the upper Big Hole River. The work would involve enhancing the riparian vegetative community, reconstructing a hardened livestock crossing, excavating two pools, and stabilizing about 50 feet of eroding stream bank. Additionally, the riparian corridor would be fenced to control livestock grazing. The intent of the project is to enhance habitat for fluvial Arctic grayling and other species of fish. The project site is located approximately 3 miles south of the community of Jackson in Beaverhead County. (Development, Improvements, and Enhancements - 09/25/2006)
