Native Trout Fare Best When Dams Use Natural Stream Flow Management Practices

The USGS just released a study where they found that native trout populations, especially in the upper Columbia River Basin which was the location for the study, do better when the rivers flow regimes aren't messed up by dams.  Go figure...

The study focused on native bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout that have been on a decline in their native ranges.

Here's a link to the USGS page that gives more details on the study.
