In Oregon, bull trout were historically found throughout the Willamette River Tributaries on the west side of the Cascades, the Columbia and Snake River tributaries east of the Cascades, and in streams of the Klamath Basin. Currently bull trout are listed as a threatened species and are mostly limited to the headwaters of their historic ranges do to degraded stream habitat. Bull trout are an indicator species and are more sensitive to increased water temperatures, and degraded stream habitat than many other salmonids. Stream habitat restoration, reduction of siltation from roads, and modification of land use practices to improve water quality are all important to bull trout survival.
