Friends of the Teton River will increase Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout populations in Teton Creek, a critical spawning tributary, by stabilizing and restoring streambanks, improving water quality and enhancing spawning habitat. Project will stabilize the headcut in Teton Creek and 1,250 linear feet of associated eroding streambank will be restored. Project design will create sustainable fish habitat, reduce sedimentation, maintain stable banks, increase riparian vegetation and dissipate the effects of flood events. The project will facilitate the recovery of native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout in Teton Creek. Project partners include local landowners, the Teton Creek Sub-watershed committee, Trout Unlimited and various government agencies.
