FWP proposes to purchase water rights from Cedar Creek, a tributary to the Yellowstone River near Corwin Springs. These water rights are currently leased by FWP for in-stream flow for the benefit of the fishery. The intent of the project is to maintain habitat for salmonids, primarily Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Cedar Creek is located about 2 miles downstream of Corwin Springs and about 10 miles downstream of Gardiner.
