Text of sign:

 

Cutthroat

 

After the ice sheet on Yellowstone Lake breaks up in May and grinds downstream beneath Fishing Bridge, you can witness a 

spawning frenzy.  Cutthroat trout lay millions of eggs in the riverbed gravel within sight of the bridge.  Spawning season has a 

powerful effect on other wildlife in the Fishing Bridge area, as a variety of birds and animals are drawn to the feast.

 

Ospreys dive for immature cutthroats, less than 13 inches long; pelicans take adult fish.  Looking for seasonal protein, grizzly bears

snatch spawning trout.


So much depends on a healthy spawning population of cutthroat trout.
