Rare cutthroat trout, saved in 416 Fire, set to be released back into the wild

During the 416 Fire in 2018, a small crew from Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service recovered 54 rare cutthroats from the Hermosa Creek watershed.

This summer, CPW intends to trek the fish back to their native habitat and release them into the wild. And with the captive population at the hatchery, the agency can start to restock other streams throughout the Southwest.
