Press release

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the Fresno Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited recently partnered up to help improve fish habitat in Fresno Reservoir.

This project consists of bundling salvaged Christmas trees and placing them in specific areas of the reservoir with the primary goal of improving spawning habitat for yellow perch. This is the second consecutive year for this project on Fresno.

Yellow perch typically deposit their eggs in a gelatinous membrane called a "skein," which they often drape over submerged vegetation and branches during their spring spawn.
