This project is a two‐year study of fisheries research in Scofield Reservoir located in southeastern Utah. It is in response to the need to understand the factors determining fish performance and the potential for biological control using three top predatory trout species (Bear Lake cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, and tiger trout) in Scofield Reservoir, as identified by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR).
