Collaborative project over 10 years in the making will remove final impediment to native fish migration in Spread Creek


Trout Unlimited (TU), Grand Teton National Park (GTNP), Bridger-Teton National Forest (BTNF), and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) announced today that construction to complete Phase 2 of the Spread Creek Fish Passage Project has started. Many years in the making, the project is a large-scale collaborative effort that will prevent future losses of migratory cutthroat trout and other native fish by installing a fish screen on the Spread Creek irrigation system. It will also make much-needed improvements to stabilize the diversion structure and channel within the project area, which have been damaged by flooding.
