Environmental Assessment For The Stocking Of Golden Trout Into 3 Mountain Lakes In The Big Hole Drainage
Species Stocking - 04/25/2014

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) is proposing to introduce golden trout into Foolhen, Rainbow and Upper Lena lakes in the Big Hole River drainage. There are no conservation populations of native westslope cutthroat trout in the drainages proposed for golden trout introduction nor any plans for restoring native species to the mainstem streams. The purpose for golden trout introduction is to provide additional diversity to mountain lake fisheries in the Big Hole River drainage.
