Trout Unlimited will improve the Yellowstone cutthroat trout population in Palisades Creek and the South Fork of the Snake River by restoring spawning and rearing habitat in Palisades Creek that has been impacted by grazing. The project will re-grade eroded stream banks, re-vegetate riparian area and restore off-channel rearing habitat. Trout Unlimited will work with the Palisades Reservoir managers to adjust release flows to mimic spring freshets. This type of spike is an important part of the hydrologic cycle the native trout need for their spawning and rearing to be successful. This project has the full cooperation of a number of private landowners as well as state and federal agencies.
