Water Outlook Continues to Improve
The 2014 water year is off to a good start, thanks to recent rain and snow. As of November 12, snowpack water content is above average, and the Island Park Reservoir stands at 42 percent of capacity. Storing this much water in such a short time has required very low outflows from Island Park Dam, but this strategy will allow flows to double to around 160 cfs during mid-winter when juvenile trout need it most. The Foundation's participation in Drought Management Planning ensures that reservoir operations benefit fish to the greatest extent possible under the constraints of filling irrigation water rights.

First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. Now we have #GivingTuesday.
Taking place December 3, 2013
-- the Tuesday after Thanksgiving -- #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to charitable giving. Several generous donors have upped the ante on #GivingTuesday by offering to match the first $5,000 of year-end gifts made that day. In addition, for a gift of $100 or more, you'll also receive a Montana Fly Company fly box as a thank you! Learn more>>
