The enclosed Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared as a preliminary comprehensive fisheries enhancement plan for Darlington Creek (aka Darlington Ditch) at Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Cobblestone Fishing Access site, south of Three Forks, MT. Improvements to Darlington Ditch would include the augmentation of the ditch to an appropriate channel dimension and slope based upon an analysis and assessment of the ditch’s existing characteristics. Riffles, pools, and runs throughout the reach will be constructed to provide spawning, rearing, and adult trout habitat and maintain efficient sediment transport capabilities. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks invites you to comment on the attached proposal. The public comment period will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. November 22, 2012.
