Environmental Assessment for Non-Native Trout Suppression in Cooney Creek

Species Removal & Relocation

07/16/2019

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (MFWP) in collaboration with the University of Montana and the MPG Ranch propose to remove non-native trout species using backpack electrofishing equipment in Cooney Creek. The proposed project would occur annually during the summer months (June, July, August, and September) starting in 2019. Funding for the project will be primarily provided by MPG Ranch with labor assistance from MFWP. The goal of the project is to suppress non-native rainbow trout and brook trout to benefit native westslope cutthroat and bull trout.
