The Henrys Fork Adopt a Trout (AaT) Program will provide much needed Colorado River cutthroat trout (CRC) movement data to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD), Trout Unlimited (TU) and a local elementary school. CRC are native to the Henrys Fork River and occupy portions of the drainage. However, no data exists for CRC in the Wyoming portion of the Henrys Fork drainage to understand population dynamics and habitat restraints. The lower Henrys Fork River often has low flows and high water temperatures in the late summer months, which will only worsen with future climate change predictions. This project will identify fish passage issues, areas of high entrainment and habitat use. This AaT study accomplishes...
Trout Unlimited will extend its existing Adopt-a-Trout program to the Henrys Fork River, a tributary to the Green River in the Colorado River basin. The project will include work with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and local schools to tag and monitor Colorado River Cutthroat trout movements to learn more about fish passage issues, areas of high entrainment, habitat use, and native and wild trout migratory patterns. Colorado River Cutthroat trout are native to the Henrys Fork River and occupy portions of the drainage; however, no data exists for Colorado River Cutthroat trout in the Wyoming portion of the Henrys Fork drainage to understand population dynamics and habitat restraints.
