KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — A $1 million restoration project on a portion of famed Silver Creek in central Idaho is mostly finished.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports that the project started last fall to restore Kilpatrick Pond to more natural conditions is done except for replanting, which is set for the next two growing seasons.

The work is intended to lower high water temperatures and reduce sediment buildup at the pond by moving a channel and creating adjacent wetlands. Silver Creek is a nationally renowned destination for fly fishers trying to catch trout in the crystal-clear spring water that produces many insect hatches.
