Re-establishing Sheep Creek drainage with native Colorado Cutthroat trout.: The tasks to be performed under this agreement are as follows: Develop North Slope CRCT brood fish for the North Slope subunit of the Northeastern GMU. To boost brood fish numbers, eggs will be collected during the Sheep Creek Lake egg take. Eggs were also taken from the Little West Fork Blacks Fork and are being raised at Fountain Green Hatchery, Utah. Fish from the two sources will be stocked into Sheep Creek Lake in 2013 (~500 CRCT). Public notification of the project began in March 2012; presentations were to the Daggett County Commissioners, the U.S. Forest Service and private landowners.
