In 2015, Trout and Salmon Foundation made a grant to the Big Blackfoot Chapter of Trout Unlimited to upgrade an irrigation diversion on Trail Creek (Montana) in the Clearwater River drainage near Seeley Lake.
An old wooden dam was removed and replaced with a rock cross-vane that allows fish movement and continued irrigation of a nearby property. A fish screen was also installed within the ditch to keep trout in the stream where they belong.
