Happy Holidays from JHTU!

This holiday season, the stunning Snake River cutthroat trout of Bar BC Spring Creek are getting the special gift of a new migration-friendly culvert and restored stream channel, which will ensure the health of this iconic spawning run long into the future (photos above). We are grateful to our partners and supporters for making this project possible! Read more about this project, currently underway, on TU.org.

In 2019, your continued support has helped JHTU:

  • Restore 1.2 miles of native fish habitat on Tincup Creek – and receive a US Forest Service award for this multi-year partnership and volunteer effort
  • Embark on the Bar BC Spring Creek project, which when completed will ensure connectivity to 2 miles of spawning habitat and improve 0.5 miles of stream channel
  • Teach over 225 local 7th graders each school year about fish and watersheds through our Jackson Adopt-a-Trout program and help to sponsor Kids Fishing Day
  • Connect with anglers through community events including film screenings, casting & cocktails, and presentations
  • Salvage 2,142 native fish from winter entrapment through fish rescues on Spread Creek, Lake Creek, and Granite Creek irrigation ditches
  • Work with the JH Clean Water Coalition and local artists to launch the Trout Friendly Lawns Certification Program, which encourages “trout friendly” lawn care practices.
  • Lay the groundwork for 5 Snake River Headwaters Initiative conservation projects to be completed in 2020, including the 2nd phase of the Spread Creek Fish Passage Project.

Thank you for being a part of the JHTU family. Merry fishing and tight lines in 2020!
