Lake trout netting in Swan Lake could be affecting bull trout
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has completed a report on the 3-year experimental lake trout removal project for Swan Lake. From 2009-2011, a total of 21,330 lake trout from 6-36 inches long were removed from Swan Lake. Lake trout catch per net increased between 2009 and 2010, then decreased in 2011, suggesting that netting efforts were effective at reducing recruitment of young lake trout into the population. Additionally, catch of predominantly newly recruited lake trout in 2010 and 2011 supported the notion that annual netting was effective at reducing abundance of juvenile lake trout.
