Yellowstone to update anglers on native trout plan

The Yellowstone River flows through the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone in Yellowstone National Park.

If you live near Yellowstone National Park and want to learn more about the park’s fishing opportunities, and its ongoing efforts to restore native trout and grayling in park waters, you’ll soon have a chance to meet directly with Park Service fisheries managers in the region.

Yellowstone National Park staff will travel to boundary communities to talk with anglers and other interested individuals about ongoing efforts to restore native fish species in park waters, the threat of aquatic invasive species, and the park’s fishing regulations.

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

  • Monday, April 29, in Bozeman, Mont., at Hilton Garden Inn, 2023 Commerce Way.
  • Tuesday, April 30, in West Yellowstone, Mont., at the West Yellowstone Visitor Center, 30 Yellowstone Avenue.
  • Tuesday, May 7, in Cody, Wyo., at The Cody Hotel, 232 West Yellowstone Avenue.
  • Wednesday, May 8, in Jackson, Wyo., at Wort Hotel, 50 N. Glenwood Street.

Each meeting will start at 7 p.m. with a brief presentation about native fish restoration projects. A discussion on angling regulations and a question-and-answer session will follow. The meetings will conclude at 8:30 p.m.

Fishing season in Yellowstone opens Saturday, May 25. Information on fishing regulations, fisheries science, and fish conservation in Yellowstone is available on the park’s website under “Fishing.”
