The numbers have been tallied after last fall’s annual Conant Valley and Lorenzo trout monitoring project on the South Fork of the Snake River. It looks as though the efforts to reduce Rainbow trout populations have been somewhat succesful as Yellowstone Cutthroat numbers edged above Rainbow trout, 1953 YCT to 1893 RT. In 2009, there were nearly 1000 more Rainbows per mile than Cutthroat. The great news is that there are over 4500 trout per mile in the South Fork! Jackson Hole News and Guide columnist Paul Bruun weighs in on the latest numbers.
