Helen Neville will present preliminary results from the genetic study of rainbow trout in the South Fork Boise River.

This study is funded in part by a Trout Unlimited Embrace-a-Stream grant and is a collaboration between the Ted Trueblood chapter, Boise Valley Fly Fishermen, Trout Unlimited national staff in Boise, the Boise National Forest, Magic Valley Fly Fishermen, Bureau of Reclamation and Idaho Fish and Game.

The project was initiated because recent sampling of rainbow trout in the SF Boise has raised concerns that the population may be in decline and has also uncovered an unusual age-class structure. The excess of larger, older fish in the SF Boise suggests that many fish in this stretch of river may be migrating from headwater streams in other areas of the Boise River system, or may be using tributaries adjacent to the SF Boise previously unknown to be important spawning areas.

Last summer the various collaborators teamed up to sample for a genetic study to help identify migration and spawning habits of the trout so that we can better understand the life histories of these fish and be better equipped to conserve them. In this preliminary presentation Helen should (hopefully) have insight as to the genetic structure within the SFB and adjacent tributaries. Future analyses should shed light on the potential use of headwater streams by migratory fish in this stretch of mainstem river.

Computer woes mean we will need to cancel this program on the South Fork and have a different program.

We'll post a note about the backup program shortly.
