This Environmental Assessment (EA) proposes to restore westslope cutthroat trout to Cherry Creek, a tributary to the Big Hole River near Melrose, MT. Proposed methods include constructing a fish migration barrier approximately 1.5 miles upstream of the mouth of the stream, removing non-native brook trout and hybridized cutthroat trout using rotenone, and restocking non-hybridized westslope cutthroat trout.
