“It’s a youth education program sponsored by Trout Unlimited,” said Cory Toye, TU’s director of the Wyoming Water Project. “Since 2007 we’ve offered the program to 20 schools and over 2,000 kids have participated.” He said schools in Lander and Dubois have already done the program, in Lander along the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River and in Dubois for a habitat improvement project along the Big Wind River.

“This is a one-year project in which we will tag 50 fish to learn more about the relationship between brown trout and burbot and get local school children involved in their management through TU’s Adopt-A-Trout Program,” said Nick Walrath TU Green River Project Manager. “We will study brown trout winter habitat and spawning areas and identify what competition there is with burbot. With the burbot, we will study their movement in the Green River to learn more about their relationship with Flaming Gorge and the river. We hope to discover a sort of “Achilles heel” in the life history of burbot that the Game and Fish and anglers can use to further reduce burbot numbers in local waters.”
