This week the WestSlope TU chapter and the Lolo National Forest finished the replacement of an undersize culvert on Marshall Creek near East Missoula.
Marshall Creek is an important tributary to the Clark Fork River that hosts a strong population of migratory cutthroat and rainbow trout. If you’ve caught a trout in the Clark Fork in the Missoula area, it may very well have been raised in this little creek.
This project marks the culmination of years of fish passage work in the creek completed by TU, Montana FWP and the Lolo National Forest, with cooperation from Missoula County, City of Missoula and other partners.
