Yellowstone Invites Anglers To “Talk Trout”

Yellowstone is known as a prime destination for anglers. However, protecting and preserving the park’s world class trout fisheries is an ever increasing challenge.

Park staff members will travel to nearby communities in the coming weeks to talk with anglers about the ongoing efforts to restore native fish species, the threat of aquatic invasive species and recent changes to fishing regulations.

In addition to the general public, local fly shop employees and fishing guides are encouraged to attend one of the following outreach meetings:

Mon., April 28 in West Yellowstone, Mont. at the Holiday Inn, 315 Yellowstone Ave.
Tues., April 29 in Jackson, Wyo. at the Wort Hotel, 50 N. Glenwood St.
Wed., April 30 in Cody, Wyo. at the Holiday Inn, 1701 Sheridan Ave.
Mon., May 5 in Bozeman, Mont. at the Best Western Plus GranTree Inn, 1325 N 7th Ave.
Tues., May 6 in Livingston, Mont. at the Best Western Yellowstone Inn, 1515 W Park St.
Wed., May 7 in Billings, Mont. at the Holiday Inn Grand Montana Billings, 5500 Midland Rd.

The meetings will begin with a brief presentation at 6:30 p.m., followed by a question and answer session and discussion.

Fishing season in Yellowstone opens Saturday, May 24. Information on fishing and fish conservation in Yellowstone is available online at http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/fishing.htm.
