August 6, 2020

Montana Pagano works for the Nez Perce fisheries in the tribe's watershed restoration division. Kyle Bratcher is the acting district fish biologist for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Wallowa district. For this podcast, we talk to Montana and Kyle about the work they do to help restore and manage fisheries in beautiful Northeast Oregon. The two of them often work together on many projects that overlap, and they represent a new era of partnerships between tribes and local and state agencies on conservation efforts for fish ranging from lamprey to bull trout.
