KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — Devices have been installed in famed fishing destination Silver Creek in central Idaho to gather information about aquatic insects to determine the efficacy of a restoration project planned by The Nature Conservancy.

The conservation organization plans to remove sediment from Kilpatrick Pond that experts say creates shallow water and high water temperatures unsuitable for fish. The conservation organization is partnering with Picabo Livestock Co. for the project that aims to restore the stream to a more natural path. The pond covers about three-quarters of a mile.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports that biologist Terry Maret with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Idaho Water Science Center put in the devices last week. Silver Creek Preserve Manager Dayna Gross says the five-year study will gauge conditions before and after the project.
