Greenback Cutthroat Trout Restoration Project

The Forest Service and the Colorado Parks and Wildlife are proposing a project for restoration of greenback cutthroat trout in Black Canyon Creek and Rock Creek which feeds into Tarryall Creek several miles above our lease.  The project proposal includes building of barriers, removal of non-native fish with piscicide, and then establishing the native fish.  If you are interested in learning more about this project, you can read the letter that was sent to interested parties at the end of March 2017.

 

Sucker Traps

TFC is attempting to trap suckers that have established a significant population in the pond near Stagestop.  Traps are wire cages with a funnel inlet that the suckers seem to find their way into but not out.  The traps are attached to the bank with a rope.  Please do not pull the traps out of the water.  Contact a TFC board member if you want some suckers for bait or if you want to help monitor the traps.

Moose Caution

The moose population has increased in Park County in recent years.  Moose consider wolves their mortal enemies and they do not draw much distinction between wolves and dogs.  If your dog encounters a moose and comes running back to you with the moose in hot pursuit, you are likely to be the one in the most danger – remember, your dog is already running.  For furtherl information on moose and living with wildlife, refer to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife webpage entitled “Moose Country” at http://cpw.state.co.us/learn/Pages/LivingwithWildlifeMoose.aspx
