Document Description
CDFG and USFWS proposes to eradicate non-native trout from the project area using the piscicide rotenone, to neutralize the rotenone downstream of Silver King Canyon at its confluence with Snodgrass Creek using potassium permanganate and to restock Silver King Creek with the native Paiute cutthroat trout (PCT), (Oncorhynchus clarki seleniris), a federally threatened species. The agencies are also evaluating the necessity of removing frish from Tamarack Lake at the headwaters of Tamarack Lake Creek, a tributary of Silver King Creek, if fish are present.
