We had a great turn out for our third annual fish ladder tour on Friday. Thanks to all those who joined us to tour the fish ladder at the Mountain Water Company dam on Rattlesnake Creek and learn more about our watershed! Special thanks to Ladd Knotek, Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, for taking time to share his knowledge about westslope cutthroat trout, bull trout, other aquatic species, and the interworkings of Mountain Water Company’s fish ladder on Rattlesnake Creek. Special thanks also to KECI and the Missoulian for their coverage of the event.
