Montana's Westslope Cutthroat Trout Conservation Project

Despite opposition from some conservationist who argue that toting thousands of gallons of Rotenone into distant mountain lakes is a bad idea, Montana scientists will use their success at Black and Blackfoot Lakes to help convince the public that many more lakes should be poisoned to clear the way for Westslope Cutthroat recovery. “In all, the Westslope Cutthroat Trout Conservation Project will treat 21 high mountain lakes over a 10-year period, poisoning in the fall and restocking in the spring.” Michael Jamison in The Missoulian.
