Draft Environmental Assessment Transfer Of Westslope Cutthroat Trout To Smith Creek (Highwood Creek Drainage)

Species Stocking

09/22/2011

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) proposes transferring non-hybridized eyed eggs and juvenile and adult westslope cutthroat trout (WCT) (Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi) to currently fishless Smith Creek in the Highwood Creek Drainage from North Fork Highwood Creek, Big Coulee Creek, and/or North Fork Little Belt Creek, all of which are in the Highwood Mountains. A fish barrier was constructed on private land near the confluence of Smith Creek and Highwood Creek in 2011.
