Missoulian Highlights Fish Screen Work on Rattlesnake Creek (MT)

In 2016, Trout and Salmon Foundation supported a plan by Montana Trout Unlimited to acquire and install a fish screen and restore 600 feet of spawning side channel on Rattlesnake Creek (Montana), a tributary of Clark Fork River, and to benefit bull trout, west slope cutthroat trout and migratory wild trout.

This project was part of a broader project to install fish screens on most of the major irrigation diversions on Rattlesnake Creek. A recent article in Missoulian highlights one such fish screen installation and describes the benefits of fish screens within Rattlesnake Creek and the broader Clark Fork watershed.
