Tom Green Park Fish Habitat Improvement Project

Post Date:02/01/2017 1:53 PM

We recently teamed up with Trout Unlimited to restore a portion of the stream bank and improve fish habitat in Tom Green Park, a natural park located in the Rattlesnake neighborhood. The West Slope Chapter of Trout Unlimited secured a grant to install a fish screen in the irrigation ditch running through the park, and upgrading the existing irrigation diversion. This will also include restoring the stream bank and creating a safer, lower impact access point to Rattlesnake Creek. Here are some pictures of the project in progress:

Installation of the fish screen south of the park which will allow fish to swim in and out of the irrigation ditch and spawn.

Upgrades to the irrigation ditch diversion which will ensure there is water in the ditch during Bull Trout spawning periods and will provide better control of the amount of water entering the ditch.
