I hope it works. I have only caught one grayling in my life don't remember the year but it was the 80's and on the west fork of the Madison. I was still a kid. I will never forget that that fish! I had never seen one and will never forget that one!!

Interesting project, I hope it works there aren't that many places in the lower 48 to catch Arctic Grayling. We have a lake over here in Wyoming that has Grayling and Wyoming Game and Fish uses it to harvest eggs and plant Grayling in other locations in the state.

I've caught a couple of grayling out of the Madison in the past.

I caught a few out of the Gallatin back when they tried to reintroduce them.
I hope it works but it seems doubtful.

The Gallatin project certainly didn't work.
I'm not sure why but I think historically they just haven't been able to compete with those invasive species, you know, the rainbows and the browns.

The remote hatching of "eyed" eggs almost sounds like they may be experimenting with Vibert boxes (or modified Vibert boxes)... pretty inexpensive technique and I'm surprised that they are not used more often to supplement natural reproduction, or reintroduce species.

One of my "Old Guard" Pocono friend's back in PA used these successfully on the Bushkill Creek in the Lehigh Valley back in the early 70's. The Bushkill at that time had quality water able to sustain wild fish, but lacked suitable spawning habitat required to self-sustain. The experiment lead to boosting public awareness for cleaning up the watershed and today boasts a wonderful, self-sustaining population of wild browns.

Interesting, no doubt.

The first grayling I caught was on the Madison at the confluence in the park quite a few years ago. I was really surprised, I had no idea there were grayling there. I think it would be great if it worked, I wouldn't worry about grayling displacing brown trout. They will most likely just become prey.

And we all know that what the Madison needs is something more of draw to bring anglers there!
