IDF&G begins rainbow trout suppression on South Fork Snake River

As part of an ongoing effort to protect the genetic integrity of the native Yellowstone cutthroat trout in the South Fork Snake River and reduce their hybridization with non-native rainbow trout, fisheries biologists from Idaho Fish and Game will be manually removing rainbow and hybrid trout over the next few weeks.

Trout removed during this effort will be relocated to nearby fishing waters for anglers to enjoy.
