Status of the Fishery
Ruby Creek is a tributary to the Madison River south of the town of Ennis. A 15-foot waterfall at stream mile 0.7, isolates most of the drainage from Madison River fish. Rainbow Trout and Rocky Mountain (mottled) Sculpin were the only fish species found above the waterfall, while Rainbow and Brown Trout and Sculpin are common below the waterfall. Ruby Creek was treated with rotenone on December 5, 2012, and on April 9 and October 16, 2013. Liquid rotenone and rotenone powder dough were applied to the stream and its fish bearing tributaries. The initial introduction of aboriginal Madison Drainage Westslope Cutthroat Trout occurred in late September, 2015, when 20 fi sh were transferred from Wally McClure Creek, their native stream estimated to hold approximately 130 ¿ 140 fish, near Hebgen Reservoir, to Ruby Creek. Transferred WCT ranged from 3.7 - 5.9 inches. WCT as small as 3 inches were spawning in Wally McClure Creek in Spring, 2015. Similar transfers are anticipated annually for up to seven years, and are expected to include transfers of WCT from the only other known aboriginal Madison population, which is in Yellowstone National Park.
