Native westslope cutthroat trout swim in the north fork of the Flathead River in northwestern Montana.

Native westslope cutthroat trout swim in the north fork of the Flathead River in northwestern Montana. This region is recognized as a range-wide stronghold for genetically pure westslope cutthroat trout. However, rainbow trout invasion and hybridization threatens these populations. Credit: Jonny Armstrong.
