Big Trout Take a Hit on Yellowstone River (by Brett French)
By angelamontana


Fish, Wildlife and Parks has released information from its spring fish sampling of the Yellowstone River following last summer’s outbreak of a parasite that killed thousands of fish. Although mostly whitefish were found floating dead or dying during the outbreak last summer, surveys this spring show that the number of large rainbow and brown trout are also down, especially in the Mill Creek and Corwin Springs areas.

To learn more about the effects of the parasite, check out my story on this week’s Montana Untamed website at: http://bgz.tt/l8siw
