    NEW YELLOWSTONE FISHING REGULATIONS

    GET 'EM
    WHILE THEY'RE HOT!

    Barbless Is In




    -- The lengthy comment period has finally come to an end & the decision is final; all Yellowstone National Park waters must be fished with barbless hooks. Fly fishing, gear fishing, and children's bait fishing, require barbless hooks.
    -- If nothing else this will bring an awareness to the fishing visitor about the status and condition of of Yellowstone Park's native fish. The regulations are supposed to enhance preservation and restoration efforts for many of the park's embattled species and waters.
    -- The current rules fail to mention the fishing coyotes from the thorofare or the fishing bears within Yellowstone. We assume that they will be exempted from the rules.
    -- Watch this space for complete details in the next day or two. Yellowstone National Park has provided a press release, and updated their web site. This is an appropriate time because Yellowstone opens today -- I think I'll go.
