Conflict created the Trout Creek Mountain Working Group in 1988. Deterioration of 160 miles of perennial streams in southeast Oregon's high desert country had caused a serious decline in the threatened Lahontan cutthroat trout population. Faced with the elimination of grazing, the group has been working instead, to craft allotment management plans that provide for both the ecological health of the land and the economic well-being of ranchers.
