Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is proposing to conserve and restore native westslope cutthroat trout in three tributaries to the Beaverhead and Big Hole rivers.
Non-native or hybridized trout would be removed in Dyce Creek, west of Dillon in the Beaverhead River drainage, and the Big Hole tributaries of McVey Creek, north of Wisdom, and Cherry Creek, near Melrose.
Public meetings will be held this week in Dillon and Butte on the three environmental assessments accompanying the projects.
The first will be held on Wednesday, April 13, at the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest Office (420 Barrett St.) and then in Butte on Thursday, April 14, at the FWP Butte Area Office (1820 Meadowlark Lane). Both meetings begin at 7 p.m.
The draft environmental assessments are available at the FWP offices in Bozeman and Helena, and on the web at fwp.mt.gov under Recent Public Notices.
