Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (FWP) is proposing to restore westslope cutthroat trout (WCT) to Pintler Creek upstream of Pintler Falls including Oreamnos Lake. Rainbow trout is the only fish species present in Pintler Creek upstream of the falls and in Oreamnos Lake. Rainbow trout would be removed using rotenone, and cutthroat trout would be restocked into the stream and lake. Nearly the entire proposed project is located within the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness Area.
