MontanaPBS presents "Rising from the Shadows: The Return of the Cutthroat Trout" on August 14 at 5 p.m.

Journey into an underwater world and discover one of the West's oldest wild animals. The cutthroat trout was first discovered and named by European-Americans on the Lewis and Clark expedition.

"Rising from the Shadows" uses breathtaking underwater imagery to reveal the dramatic world of cutthroat trout as they encounter fierce predators, changing habitat and the threat of hybridization with other species. Viewers will meet the scientists, anglers and artists who are making an unprecedented historic attempt to help the cutthroat rise from the shadows of decline.

The show repeats Aug. 15 at 10:30 a.m. and Aug. 17 at 2:30 a.m.
