Local Cutthroat Rehabilitation Project

A local (just over the mountain) creek, Swan Creek, is being rehabilitated and restocked with Bonneville cutthroat. There are multiple ongoing projects to help Bear Lake’s feeder creeks. DWR will rotenone the creek this fall and then restock with Bonnies. For those concerned about “killing fish,” there is a pretty decent comparison in the article: “Just as rogue weeds that choke out native plants are eradicated
to preserve natural ecosystems, the alien hybrids in Swan Creek will be
wiped out to make way for natives.”
