The Town of Jackson will continue to implement stream improvements to reduce icing and winter flooding that adversely affect native cutthroat trout populations in Flat Creek. The project will install 21 in-stream structures such as logs and boulders, to narrow and deepen the channel in priority reaches, and slow water velocities and reduce turbulence, create more pool-riffle areas, restore riparian vegetation, and improve stream-bed conditions to promote native trout spawning and incubation. This project is part of a larger effort to rehabilitate the Flat Creek basin and improve water quality and fish habitat along the entire length of the river. Project partners include Teton Conservation District and private landowners.
