Document Description
The project is construction of a fish barrier on the spillway outlet of Independence Lake, as part of an overall strategy to protect and restore the native Lahontan cutthroat trout population (Oncorhynchus clarkii henshawi) of Independence Lake. Lahontan cutthroat trout (LCT) is federally listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The only self-sustaining indigenous lake population of LCT in CA resides in Independence Lake and the main inlet tributary, Upper Independence Creek. This population is genetically unique and is vulnerable to hybridization of extinction. Hybridization with non-native trout and competition with a predation by non-native fishes are considered serious threats to LCT in Independence Lake.
