Bull trout

Third on the list are bull trout, which can be found in the streams of Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Like many freshwater fish, the bull trout's reproduction requires cold water and very low amounts of silt, both of which are negatively impacted by road building, logging and warming. Bull trout are considered a management indicator species for several national forests, including Boise National Forest and Sawtooth National Forest.
