Yellowstone Staff to Host Meetings on Fishing Regulations

Yellowstone National Park is inviting anglers to a series of meetings around the Greater Yellowstone Area to discuss fishing regulations in the park.

Besides regulations, the meetings will cover native fish restoration and addressing the threat of aquatic invasive species (AIS).

These meetings are open to the general public, but anglers, fishing guides, and fly shop employees/owners are especially encouraged to attend.

The meeting dates, times, and locations are below, courtesy of Yellowstone National Park:

• Monday, April 30: Hilton Garden Inn, 2023 Commerce Way, Bozeman, MT
• Tuesday, May 1: Holiday Inn, 315 Yellowstone Avenue, West Yellowstone, MT
• Wednesday, May 2: Wort Hotel, 50 N. Glenwood Street, Jackson, WY
• Thursday, May 3: The Cody Hotel, 232 West Yellowstone Avenue, Cody, WY

Meetings will begin at 7 p.m. and conclude at 8:30 p.m. Each meeting will start with a presentation on native fish restoration, followed by a presentation on fishing regulations and a question and answer session.

Fishing season in Yellowstone National Park opens Saturday, May 26.

A reminder that Yellowstone recently banned the use of felt-soled wading boots in all park waterways, in order to curb the risk of AIS hitching a ride on felt. Anglers must use rubber boots instead.
