Lahontan Cutthroats Reintroduced in SE Oregon

The McDermitt Creek watershed in south-east Oregon is being slated for the reintroduction of Lahontan Cutthroat sometime next year. The watershed is located in Malheur County close to the Nevada border.

Prior to the stockings, the watershed will be treated with rotenone to eliminate any competing species. This is part of the three year plan to bring native Lahontan cutthroats back to the upper Great Basin. Nearby Cottonwood and Indian creeks have been similarly treated and will also be stocked, probably sometime in 2009.

'"If we are successful in establishing a viable, self-sustaining population of Lahontan cutthroat trout, it could be de-listed as a threatened species, " said Tim Walters, an ODFW district biologist. "In several years, a healthy population of Lahontan cutthroat in the McDermitt Creek basin could be available for angling.""
