EIS-0353: Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement

South Fork Flathead Watershed/Westslope Cutthroat Trout Conservation Program

This notice announces BPA’s intention to prepare an EIS on removal of all fish from selected lakes in the South Fork of the Flathead River drainage that harbor non-native species that threaten to genetically contaminate native fish in streams leading from those lakes, down into the South Fork Flathead River and Hungry Horse Reservoir. The specific lakes proposed for treatment are located in the Montana Counties of Flathead, Missoula, and Powell. This proposed action would take place within floodplains and waters located directly adjacent to and below the high water marks of these lakes.
