Pat Saffel, who is the Montana Region 2 Fisheries Program Manager, was named “Outstanding Fisheries Professional” for 2011 by the Montana Chapter of the American Fisheries Society.

Saffel’s region includes lakes and waterways of the Clark Fork Basin in west-central Montana and has helped pick priority areas for $45 million of river and tributary enhancements under the Natural Resource Damage Program.

That work was recently approved by the Upper Clark Fork Steering Committee and signed by the Governor for inclusion in the overall remediation plan.

Saffel contributed to the Milltown Dam removal and remediation. He also helped in acquiring about 75,000 acres, including land that created the Fish Creek and Marshall Creek Wildlife Management Areas. He worked with others for the transfer of land for riparian habitat along Chamberlain Creek up the Blackfoot.

He has a BS from South Dakota State and an MS from the University of Idaho. The American Fisheries Society is the oldest and largest professional society for fisheries scientists in the world.
