Paiute Cutthroat Trout Recovery Effort Continues Despite the Slink Fire

Paiute Cutthroat Trout Released

Recovery efforts continued this October when fisheries biologists relocated 44 Paiute cutthroat trout by pack animals from the nearby Corral Valley Creek into Silver King Creek, the fish’s historic home. Both creeks are in the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The Slink Fire, which occurred in September 2020, added urgency to the effort. The 26,759-acre fire burned about half of the Corral Valley Creek watershed, potentially threatening the pure Paiute cutthroat trout population.
