Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Poudre Headwaters Project
New Video and Materials to Support Native Trout Restoration
Rocky Mountain Flycasters (RMF) has produced a new video Restoring Colorado’s Native Trout that describes steps that are necessary for native trout restoration. RMF has also produced printed materials that describe the Poudre Headwaters Project and processes for restoring native trout in our region.
Rocky Mountain Flycasters Chapter of Colorado Trout Unlimited has a longstanding interest in and commitment to the restoration of native trout to a portion of our region’s watersheds. RMF volunteers for many years have cooperated to further the efforts of state and federal agencies in restoring native trout. These efforts have included volunteer field work, fund raising, and communication outreach concerning the needs and methods of native trout restoration.
In recent years, RMF has been involved in native trout restoration efforts in the Cache la Poudre watershed including on George Creek and Cornelius Creek in the North Fork Poudre watershed, and on the headwater tributaries of the Poudre River near Rocky Mountain National Park. Both of these native trout restoration projects are ongoing, and the Poudre Headwaters Project (PHP) is the largest ever Colorado native trout restoration project.
