The Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Green River region will hold a public open house at 6 p.m. on Oct. 18 to discuss the Flaming Gorge fishery. The meeting will be held at the Green River campus of Western Wyoming Community College in the John Wesley Powell Room (Room #206).
Over the past few years, numerous research projects have been completed on kokanee salmon and lake trout, including an eight-month-long creel survey and population estimate of lake trout under 28 inches. Both projects were completed in cooperation with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
The meeting will begin with a presentation covering past and present data to provide anglers with an understanding of the current status of the sport fisheries in Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The presentation will also include a section highlighting possible management options moving forward. Department fisheries biologists will be available to answer questions during and after the presentation. Anglers who fish Flaming Gorge are encouraged to attend.
