In May, the Mammoth Creek Environmental Impact Report was approved, paving the way for a restoration of Mammoth Creek’s habitat and fishery. Once given formal approval by the State Water Resources Control Board, the EIR offers several key benefits to fisheries and anglers, including:
- Minimum instream flows needed to support fisheries in good condition
- $10,000 contributed annually to a fisheries enhancement fund supporting watershed restoration
- The Mammoth Community Water District will implement a comprehensive water conservation plan
CalTrout’s role in this process has been critical; we worked collaboratively and relied on sound scientific techniques to drive our participation in this landmark project.
