Removing 10,654 Rainbows

Regional fisheries biologists recently crunched the numbers on their spring electroshocking efforts and report removing 10,654 rainbow trout from the South Fork of the Snake River and stocking them in other East Idaho waters.

The goal of the Rainbow Trout Suppression project on the South Fork was to remove 30 percent of the rainbows — about 12,000 fish — to give the native cutthroat a better chance to thrive.
