Meeting Set Regarding Fishing in the Park
Written by wendycorr on April 24, 2019
Yellowstone National Park staff are traveling to nearby communities to talk about fishing in the Park.
Prior to the opening of fishing season in Yellowstone on May 25th, anglers and other interested individuals are invited to any of four outreach events to learn about ongoing efforts to restore native fish species, the threat of aquatic invasive species, and the park’s fishing regulations.
Locally, the general public, fly shop employees, and fishing guides are encouraged to attend a meeting on Tuesday, May 7th, at The Cody Hotel. Similar meetings will be held in Bozeman, West Yellowstone, and Jackson.
The Cody meeting will have a special addition – at 8:15 p.m., there will be a showing of a movie that was featured in the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour. Kathy Crofts, President of East Yellowstone Trout Unlimited, says the video, titled “The Return,” features Cody resident Dave Sweet and his daughter Diana, and focuses on the return of Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout to the Thorofare.
The meeting on May 7th will begin at 7 p.m. with a brief presentation about native fish restoration projects, followed by a discussion on angling regulations and a question and answer session, then a screening of the movie, “The Return.”
