[T^ Core Area'Watersheds Figure 2. Core area watersheds and proposed critical bull trout habitat for the Blackfoot River Watershed (excluding the Clearwater drainage). Structure throughout the watershed; 3) maintain and increase the connectivity between the Blackfoot River and its tributaries; 4) establish a baseline of redd counts in all drainages that presently support spawning migratory bull trout; and 5) maintain a count of a least 100 redds or 2,000 individuals in the Blackfoot drainage with an increasing trend thereafter (MBTRT 2000). In 2002, the Unites States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) designated proposed critical habitat and developed a draft recovery plan. The critical habitat designation includes the mainstem Blackfoot River and all mainstem tributaries of all core area watersheds (Figure 2). The draft recovery plan outlined measures needed to help remove bull trout from the ESA list, similar to the Montana Bull Trout Recovery Team (USFWS 2002). During 2002 and 2003, bull trout recovery incorporated: 1) restoration on four bull trout-bearing streams (Results Part III); 2) completion of a bull trout telemetry study in the upper drainage (Results Part IV); 3) an evaluation of thermal properties of spawning sites; 4) adopted fishing gear restrictions {artificial lure only) at the mouth of the North Fork and Monture Creek; and 4) the decision to remove Milltown Dam. We also monitored bull trout population trends in the Blackfoot River and five spawning streams, and assessed juvenile populations on four core area streams (Results Part III). Beginning in 1994, telemetry studies identified the movements and habitat use of fluvial bull trout in the lower Blackfoot River (Schmetterling 2001, 2003, Swanberg 1997; Swanberg and Bums 1997). Studies confirmed the importance of Monture C
