Yellowstone Trout Management

NPCA is working to protect Yellowstone's native cutthroat trout in the face of climate change. We are advocating that the National Park Service take aggressive management measures to curtail Yellowstone Lake Trout populations, a non-native and competing species to native cutthroat trout.

NPCA has partnered with Montana & Wyoming Trout Unlimited, Greater Yellowstone Coalition and the National Park Service to fund native fisheries research projects and work together to ensure native fisheries remain vital in and around Yellowstone. The National Park Service released its decision on its Native Fish Conservation Plan Environmental Assessment that will guide fisheries management. Read about impact the cutthroat's disappearance could have in this National Parks article. To learn more about NPCA’s Yellowstone Native Fisheries work, read the executive summary of our new report, Yellowstone’s Native Fisheries: Opportunities for Native Fish Conservation & Restoration.

NPCA's Yellowstone Program is leading efforts to protect our nation's first national park. We are working to:

  • safeguard the park in the winter through moving to a snowcoach only transportation system;
  • protect Yellowstone’s bison by expanding access to critical habitat outside the park;
  • improve and restore habitat for Yellowstone’s pronghorn antelope;
  • protect and restore native fisheries;
  • secure additional funding for Yellowstone to make up the $23 million annual gap between what Yellowstone needs to operate and what it actually receives, and;
  • decrease and mitigate the impacts of climate change on Yellowstone National Park.

Through our Gateways to Yellowstone project, we identified the connection between Yellowstone National Park and the economic success in our region, creating a network of local voices advocating for park protection.
