Trout Unlimited Tribasin Project Reconnects 21 Miles of Native Cutthroat Habitat

Together with Trout Unlimited and a long list of additional partners, Trout and Salmon Foundation supported the reconnection of 21 miles of prime spawning habitat for native cutthroat trout. The Jackson Hole News and Guide (Wyoming) recently published a story on the success of the project:

By fundraising and investing about $375,000, Trout Unlimited managed to install a bridge where a culvert once contained the mainstream Greys River. The three undersized stream culverts — on Mink Creek, Clear Creek and the West Fork Greys River — were replaced with larger, better-aligned structures that should fix the fast, shallow water that cutthroat couldn’t easily pass through.”
