Save the Fishes

Fish screens save lives.

The cutthroat trout of Marshall Creek return each spring to spawn.  The creek runs 15 degrees colder than the Clark Fork River and has the fine gravel bed essential for survival and reproduction. In 2019, some of the Jackson Crew helped to ensure the success of the Marshall Creek cutthroat by fabricating and installing a fish screen over an irrigation ditch. In 2020, we were at it again by installing another fish screen on the East Fork of the Bitterroot River.

Many of our crew love spending time in the outdoors, specifically fishing. The efforts at Marshall Creek and Bitterroot River are just a couple examples of how proud we are to have these people as part of our crew.
