The Shoshone Bannock Tribes recently completed construction of a fish weir on the outlet stream of Pettit Lake in the Stanley Basin. This site will better monitor and help fish biologists gather specific data in an effort to restore sockeye salmon runs, by tagging and tracking out-migrating juvenile sockeye salmon from Pettit Lake as well as counting, trapping and processing returning adult sockeyes. Despite poor conditions for migrating salmon in recent years, Pettit Lake saw its first salmon return to the lake in decades.
