YNP Plans Meeting to Discuss New Fishing Regulations

Posted: Updated:

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - Anglers are invited to learn more about Yellowstone National Park's new fishing regulations and the Native Fish Conservation Plan during an upcoming meeting.

Fisheries managers focus on the recovery of the Yellowstone Lake Ecosystem through the restoration of the native fish species, which includes Yellowstone cutthroat trout, Arctic grayling, and westslope cutthroat trout.

The park updated its fishing regulations this season to correlate with the Native Fish Conservation Plan.

One change includes the elimination of the limit on non-native fish caught in all park waters, except the Madison and Firehole rivers, the Gibbon River below Gibbon Falls, and Lewis and Shoshone lakes.

The public meeting to help anglers enhance their understanding of the recent changes in fishing regulations and how the changes support the park's Native Fish Conservation Program will be held at the Holiday Inn West Yellowstone on Tuesday, July 2, starting at 7 p.m.
