Objectives: 1. To make in-stream structures that were placed into Muddy Creek for stream reclamation passable to fish while still maintain the purpose and function of the original structure. 2. To reconnect 50 miles of contiguous stream habitat for BLM sensitive fishes including the Colorado River cutthroat troat, bluehead sucker, flannelmouth sucker, and roundtail chub. Background: Muddy Creek is the only system in Wyoming where viable populations of BLM sensitive Colorado River cutthroat trout, bluehead sucker, flannelmouth sucker, and roundtail chub coexist. Bluehead sucker, flannelmouth sucker, and roundtail chub populations have declined by about 50% range-wide and although Muddy Creek has the largest population...
