Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest will replace and/or construct up to three miles of fencing and install a cattle guard on the north fork of the Humboldt River to prevent unauthorized livestock trespass, thereby decreasing cumulative impact to native Lahontan cutthroat trout, a federally threatened native trout species. This project will restore more than 5.5 miles of stream and 330 acres of riparian area. This project was identified as a high priority to achieve the Lahontan cutthroat trout recovery goals. The U.S. Forest Service is committed to working with the local landowners of adjacent allotments to control livestock passage and grazing, and to restore the habitat to assure protection and recovery of the Lahontan cutthroat trout.
