“Identifying Movement Patterns and Spawning Areas of Invasive Lake Trout (Salvelinus namaycush) in Yellowstone Lake
Investigators Annual Report for 2013 (July 2014)”, the final report for the 2013 season of telemetry and netting on Yellowstone Lake, is now available online for automatic download here:

As you review it, you’ll realize 2013 was a successful year for suppressing lake trout and enhancing Yellowstone cutthroat trout populations, but there’s still plenty of work to be done!
