This Montana fish story follows the decades long efforts of biologists and conservationists to restore wild trout fisheries to the streams and lakes of this great state.
Trout Unlimited features the efforts of biologists working closely with conservation-conscious organizations to bring back wild trout fisheries in Montana.
It is a success story in making this state such a destination for avid anglers and outdoorsmen.
Four decades ago there were some famous rivers in Montana that were so polluted with low water quality that the native trout population had pretty much died out. With the efforts of these champions of conservation from Montana Fish and Wildlife coupled with the efforts of conservation groups and state representatives many of the traditional fisheries have been restored.
But this success story could change very quickly and still a lot of land and waterways are under threat. With this in mind, consider throwing your hat in the ring as a champion of conservation and joining an organization like Trout Unlimited or Delta Waterfowl to protect these resources.
