CSKT 2014 Implementation Plan for the
Flathead Lake and River Fisheries Co-Management Plan
The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes' (CSKT) 2014 Implementation Plan for the Flathead Lake and River Fisheries Co-Management Plan constitutes the final step in the environmental analysis completed in February 2014. It replaces a “Record of Decision” (ROD) that typically follows the completion of an Environmental Impact Statement. The BIA, trust agency for the CSKT, deemed a ROD unnecessary because BIA had previously granted their authority for CSKT to suppress lake trout when giving approval to the Kerr Dam mitigation program. In addition to replacing the Record of Decision, this plan establishes the annual process that the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes will follow to implement the direction of the Co-Management Plan.
