MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has completed an environmental assessment (EA) for the restoration of native fish to the Boulder Creek watershed, including Lower Boulder Lake and Boulder Creek, through removal of a hybridized Yellowstone cutthroat trout population by applying the piscicide rotenone and restocking the lake and stream with native westslope cutthroat trout. The Boulder Creek watershed is located approximately 15 miles SW of Eureka, Montana. No changes were made to the draft EA based on the lack of comments and issues received during the 30-day public review. Therefore, the draft will become the final document for this project together with the decision notice, and FWP will implement plans for the project.
