Teton River Needs Trout

March 14, 2012 State of Idaho, Teton County, Teton Valley No Comments
FTR

Friends of the Teton River in Teton Valley, Idaho is proposing to re-introduce Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout into the Teton River in cooperation with the Idaho Fish and Game Department to help make the species more resilient there.  The group says the species has fallen victim to non-native competition, habitat degradation and climate change.  They propose that the reintroduction can be done by planting fertilized eggs in the streams or by transplanting adults from streams where pure Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout still persist.  The group would like others to comment on the proposal as part of their comments during the review process for the Teton River Fisheries Management Plan.  That plan is available from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game Regional Fisheries Manager and comments need to be received by March 31st.
