Description

David Schmetterling discusses his work with fish habitats and passage for the Montana State Fish, Wildlife, and Parks Services and how that work influenced the Milltown Dam removal project. Schmetterling describes fish species native to Montana, including the cutthroat trout and the bull trout, and the fish habitat created by the Milltown Reservoir. He also details how the Milltown Dam impeded upstream and downstream movement of fish, as well as the public awareness campaigns that highlighted contemporary impacts of the Milltown Dam on fish in Northwest Montana.
