One of the highlights of the tour was the work Trout Unlimited has done on the river. Fisheries restoration coordinator Jim DeRito informed tour participants of the projects done by the local chapter, Upper Bear River Trout Unlimited. “TU has presented Upper Bear River irrigation efficiency and fish conservation projects during meetings of the commission’s Water Quality Committee and its subcommittee/task force during the past year,” DeRito said. “The tour was a great opportunity to explain these projects and recent changes. … TU’s work aligns well with the commission’s mission to promote better water management. Improved irrigation water diversion and delivery practices also benefit streams and fish.”

"Demands are growing on our nation’s public lands, from energy development to more people recreating, hunting and fishing. Land and wildlife managers are also facing increasing challenges from invasive species, uncharacteristic wildfires, drought and a changing climate,” said Corey Fisher, senior policy director for the Sportsmen’s Conservation Project at Trout Unlimited in a prepared statement. “The BLM’s proposed updates to its planning process call for applying the best science available and giving managers the tools they need to adapt to changing conditions and better serve the public,” Fisher said.

“We’ve put things in place that will make Denver Water be a steward of the river,” Whiting said. The agreement hashed out between Denver Water and conservationists “does not specifically say they have to tweak the flows to help the environment. It does say they have to monitor, for water temperature and macroinvertebrates. And if there’s a problem, they are responsible for figuring out why and they need to do something about it. It does not say exactly what they have to do but they have to fix any problem.”

The Utah Cutthroat slam was initiated by Brett Prettyman with Trout Unlimited. "That's a great way to start off. Brett kicked off our Slam series last month at Bear Lake by catching Bear River cutthroat. Today we've got about a mile and a half, two mile hike to start out. We'll need to put in a lot more leg work to get our catch. To start the cutthroat trout challenge, it's $20.00, about $19 of that will go right back into cutthroat trout conservation and if you are under 18 it's $10.00 to register. So sign up, start catching your four sub species in their native range, call one of the division offices if you have questions. Also great information on TU's website who has been really the co-sponsor of this program."

Smitherman made it clear from the beginning he and his new coalition—Citizens for the Wyoming Range—were not against drilling. “We all drive cars, we all need electricity,” he admitted. But what he was able to do was convince groups like Muley Fanatics, Trout Unlimited, and Wyoming Wildlife Federation that they had a common cause and a common foe. He made sure to include trona miners and roughnecks themselves who stepped up at public meetings, despite the threat of losing their jobs, who said they couldn’t bear to see that country get tapped for juice.
