We are more than excited to be partnering with Trout Unlimited’s Colorado Water Project on a small grant that was recently funded by the Western Native Trout Initiative (WNTI). With the money provided by WNTI, we will be printing a poster that we have designed (using $$$ raised by 2014 flyathletes) that highlights the Rio Grande cutthroat trout, one of Colorado’s remaining native trout species. We will make these posters available to cutthroat trout fans through the Flyathlon, through Colorado Parks and Wildlife, through New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, and through WNTI. Further, we will be printing several signs for placement at the trailheads of select Rio Grande cutthroat trout streams, to educate visitors about the fish and its importance. If you are interested in receiving a copy of this poster, please send me an email.
Please be sure to visit WNTI’s webpage to learn more about the Rio Grande cutthroat trout and other Western Native trout.
