Trout Unlimited heartily supports the cutthroat restoration plan, Ty Churchwell, the organization’s backcountry coordinator, said Tuesday.

“Few locations are as perfect for such a program as the headwaters of Hermosa Creek,” Churchwell said. “It’s important to note that the mainstem of Hermosa Creek below Hotel Draw will remain a multispecies, catch-and-keep fishery for 20-plus miles to its confluence with the Animas River.”
