Trout Benefit From Bridge Over Stream

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

At the upper reaches of Jack Creek in northeastern Nevada, for nearly 15 years, a culvert completely obstructed the upstream movement of redband trout and bull trout. Bull trout populations were declining, and it was placed on the “Threatened Species” list by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Thanks to support from Wildlife Forever, a new bridge was constructed, replacing the culvert and restoring Jack Creek as a valuable fish spawning and refuge tributary.
