Volunteer Angler Report Card - Please Complete and Return!
Each year since 1979, Yellowstone has asked anglers to keep records on fishing trips, including the stream or lake visited, time spent fishing, fish species caught, lengths of fish, and so forth. The long-term database this has created, enables park managers to better understand fisheries status and track changes in specific populations from year-to-year.
