White Gulch Westslope Cutthroat Recovering

November 19, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Thanks to a $350,000 project of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, a few surviving cutthroat are now spreading back over their original range in a stream near Helena, Montana. “‘We brought in a consultant, and he told us we could do it,’ Ihle said. ‘He said it was just a dirt deal.’ The first job was creating a holding pond for the cutthroats, Montana’s state fish and a candidate for listing under the Endangered Species Act.” Eric Newhouse in the Great Falls Tribune.
