‘State of the Fisheries’ meetings scheduled for Summit, Grand counties


Here’s the release from Colorado Parks and Wildlife:

As part of continuing efforts to involve the public in managing their wildlife, Colorado Parks and Wildlife will hold two “State of the Fisheries” meetings this month in Grand and Summit counties. Local anglers, guides and business owners or any interested members of the general public are invited to attend and offer their views about the management goals of several local fisheries.

The first will occur Tuesday, March 18, in the Buffalo Mountain Room at the Summit County Commons in Frisco, followed by a meeting Wednesday, March 19 at the Granby Public Library. Both meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.

“It’s important for the public to understand that we rely on their input for our wildlife management decisions and strategies,” said biologist Jon Ewert of Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Hot Sulphur Springs. “We anticipate a lively discussion and encourage everyone to come out and participate in the future of their local fisheries.”

Ewert plans the meeting as a ‘data workshop’ which he describes as being effective in encouraging discussion and interaction between the agency and sportsmen.

“As we have done in the past, anglers will have the opportunity to call out a local body of water and then I will provide data, stocking records and future plans about that fishery, followed by an open discussion,” he continued. Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds the public that fishing licenses go on sale March 31 and are valid for one year.
