We appreciate your sponsorship in making Down the Hatch a premier Missoula event, spreading the joy of fly fishing as well as raising funds for our fish habitats. Proceeds from the 2017 Down the Hatch beer and film festival tickets and will go towards installing modern irrigation fish screens on the six irrigation ditches on lower Rattlesnake Creek. Rattlesnake Creek is an important spawning tributary of the Clark Fork and each year thousands of juvenile and adult west slope cutthroat, brown, rainbow and bull trout become entrapped in these ditches. These special screens, which use the latest technology and are self-cleaning, will result in an almost immediate improvement in the numbers of fish returning to the Clark Fork to grow and thrive. This effort is part of the chapter’s ongoing work to provide connectivity and successful spawning habitat in the Missoula area. This project will also involve volunteer labor from chapter members. We are grateful to Orvis’ generous support of this important project.
