Cutthroat Trout Project in the Bob Marshall Wilderness

Posted: Updated:

Montana officials are considering adding Koessler lake as part of an effort to remove invasive species and restore native cutthroat trout. Montana's Fish, Wildlife and Parks commission might add the lake as part of it's Cutthroat trout project in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Good news for those who love to fish, because if approved there would be no creel limits this summer before biologists treat the lake in the south fork Flathead river drainage with the fish poison rotenone in September. Fisheries biologist Matt Boyer says 12 mountain lakes have been chemically treated. He says another six have had "genetic swamping," where large numbers of Westslope Cutthroat trout have been added to crowd out non-native fish.

So now is a good time for you too hit the lake and fish before September.
