Specimen Creek Focus of Park's Westslope Cutthroat Replacement

The East fork of Yellowstone Park’s Specimen Creek will be blocked and poisoned three times over the next two years to help recovery of genetically pure Westslope trout. “Once the fish are killed and removed, park officials will replace them with westslope trout. The trout will come from a previously unknown, genetically pure westslope population found last summer on the western edge of Yellowstone.” Mike Stark in the Billings Gazette.
