McVey Creek Riparian Fencing and Bridge Project Draft EA
Development, Improvements, and Enhancements - 01/15/2013

The Future Fisheries Improvement Program is proposing to provide partial funding to a project calling for the installation of about 2,800 feet of riparian fencing and an associated livestock water gap on a reach of McVey Creek located with a section of school trust land. Additionally, the project calls for installing a bridge at the site of an existing, overused, road ford. McVey Creek is the site of a recent successful project involving the restoration of a genetically pure westslope cutthroat trout population. The project site is located approximately 6 miles north of the town of Wisdom in Beaverhead County on property owned by state of Montana (school trust).
