Restoration & Rehabilitation
An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for a proposal to restore Arctic grayling into several waters in Southwestern Montana. The currently proposed locations include: the Madison River (utilizing multiple tributaries), Wise River, Twin Lakes, Van Houten Lake and Trail Creek in the Big Hole Basin. The reintroduction method would involve using Remote Site Incubators (RSIs) to hatch Arctic grayling eggs from the conservation broodstocks directly into stream reaches, or potentially fry or fingerling stocking into lakes. No existing fish populations will be manipulated as part of the proposed project.
