Wednesday: Trout in the News

Today's news from the world of our favorite salmonid:

The State of Montana is planning on moving around 1000 Yellowstone Cutthroat trout in hopes of saving them from falling victim to the after effects of a major wildfire. (Link via the Pioneer Times - Journal)

More threatened Bull Trout are getting lucky in Montana these days.

About 80 trout on Arkansas' North Fork River have died from the effects of low amounts of dissolved oxygen in the water caused by temperature changes in its source lake. Be sure to look at the pictures in this article. These are some large trout.

Knoxnews Columnist Sam Venable writes about a Sevier county couple who turn old plastic drink bottles into trout sculptures.
