Cutthroat comeback?

Native trout brought back to Woods Lake
Colorado Parks and Wildlife recently transplanted 250 native cutthroat trout to Woods Lake southwest of Telluride as the first step in a project aimed at re-establishing the fish throughout the Dolores and Gunnison river basins. In another reintroduction project, Parks and Wildlife biologist Jim White pours fingerling cutthroats into a drainage in the upper reaches of Hermosa Creek north of Durango.
A cutthroat trout is netted for inspection at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Fish Hatchery in Durango.
Fingerling cutthroats are prepared for release in the upper reaches of Hermosa Creek.
