Fish & Wildlife
The Sun River watershed is a special place for fish and wildlife. From the wilds of the Sun Canyon, to the deer and elk in the Sun River Wildlife Management area, to the fish that need a healthy river and connected streams, managing habitat health is a big endeavor. SRWG works closely with our partners to understand and address the needs of the abundant fish and wildlife that live here.
Each fall, SRWG volunteers and FWP net fish remaining in ditches and convey them back to the river at the end of the irrigation season. Volunteers are needed to help each year. Contact Tracy to join the Fish Rescue Crew.
SRWG projects improve habitat for fish and wildlife. Check back here for more project information coming soon.
Fish + Wildlife Resources
Each year, FWP surveys fish populations at several locations in the watershed. These surveys help biologists understand fish health, population distribution, and other factors that inform fish management. SRWG can use this information to guide habitat improvement projects.
