Bass Lake Restoration Project

Restoration & Rehabilitation

Thu May 09 14:30:00 MDT 2013

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (MFWP), Region One, is seeking public comment for a proposal to remove a northern pike population in Bass Lake and Mud Creek in northwest Montana using a combination of netting, trapping, and electrofishing, and restocking the lake with native westslope cutthroat trout. This project would be conducted within the Mud Creek watershed located approximately 6 miles southeast of the city of Eureka. The removal of northern pike would help restore native fish populations in the Tobacco River and Lake Koocanusa, which Bass Lake and Mud Creek feed. The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is proposing to fund the project. The draft is out for a 30-day public review through June 8, 2013. Please contact FWP Fisheries Biologist Jim Dunnigan, (406) 293-4161, Ext. 200, or e-mail to with questions or comments.
