Yellowstone Originals

from 175.00

This painting was done for an entry into the Wyoming Conservation Stamp Competition. The only two fish native to Yellowstone Lake are Yellowstone cutthroats and the longnose dace. I wanted to highlight these natives because of the intense work that Yellowstone National Park has done to restore Yellowstone Lake to to it's two native fish species. The lake trout was introduced (some think accidentally during a game and fish stocking and some think illegally by fisherman) into Yellowstone lake... Now it flourishes in Yellowstone Lake bringing a significant decline to the cutthroat trout population in the lake. It's not an end-of-the-world situation... but it sure costs a lot to get rid of the lake trout in Yellowstone Lake.
