The Missoulian newspaper has an excellent article today by Perry Backus on some Fish, Wildlife and Parks research being done on bull trout in Skalkaho creek. Give it a read this fine late August morning, as the kids in Missoula all head back to school. Where bull trout continue to make spawning runs, and how many are still making the journey are all part of the mystery. With the help of this research, hopefully we’ll know more. Good stuff, and a good week to get out on the river with no crowds in sight.
