JACKSON, Wyo. — Grand Teton National Park shared some good news today.

Through a collaborative effort with Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming Game & Fish, Trout Unlimited, fishing guides and local volunteers, 2,700 fish were rescued from irrigation ditches and creeks drying up for the winter.

“Volunteers hastily netted fish and returned them to the Snake River by the bucketful,” said GTNP in a Facebook post.

The crews saved a variety of species including the Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat Trout.
