Westslope Cutthroat and Bull Trout Preservation in Gunsight Lake Environmental Assessment

Glacier National Park is proposing to remove non-native rainbow trout from Gunsight Lake and establish the lake as secure habitat for native westslope cutthroat trout and bull trout. Non-native rainbow trout would be removed from the Gunsight Lake using an EPA registered and approved fish toxicant, rotenone. Following the removal of the non-native rainbow trout, genetically pure westslope cutthroat trout and bull trout would be translocated (i.e., stocked) into Gunsight Lake.

An environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared for the proposal and is available for public review and comment. Please follow the link below to review and comment on the EA.
