Bank Revegetation Improves Rattlesnake Creek

Earth Day Planting on Rattlesnake Creek


The WestSlope Chapter of Trout Unlimited and TU’s Clark Fork River Project and volunteers helped to revegetate the area surrounding a newly installed fish screen on Rattlesnake Creek. The fish screen prevents migratory trout from being captured in the Hughes-Fredline irrigation ditch as they move to and from the Clark Fork River.


Revegetation of this area will protect the stream bank, promote native plant growth, add shade to Rattlesnake Creek and protect the fish screen from damage.
