Cutthroat trout stage comeback on Hoback

The Hoback River’s cutthroat fishery has bounced back, now that the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has stopped stocking it with hatchery-raised fish.

Unfortunatley the Hoback is now threatened by natural gas development and made American River's list of America's Most Endangered Rivers.

The Noble Basin sits in the shadow of the Wyoming Range, most of which was protected from energy development by Congress in 2009.  But previous leases bought by energy companies can still be developed, and that includes one proposal for 136 wells to be drilled by Texas based Plains Exploration and Production (PXP).

One just needs to look at what gas drilling has done to the area surrounding Pinedale to see why the door should not be opened to gas development in the Noble Basin.
