St. Vrain gets needed help


The city of Lyons in conjunction with the Division of Wildlife is proposing to make the St. Vrain river through Lyons catch and release. Initial agreements will improve this section dramatically as the shocking results from last fall revealed a dismal 23 adult fish. This section has recieved stockings but unfortunately cannot support catch and keep pressure dispite favorable water flows and improved habitat. A public meeting discussing this proposal will be held at City of Lyons town hall April 6th at 6:30 P.M. Anyone with an interest in the future of this fishery is encouraged to attend. Special thanks to the St. Vrain chapter of TU for their efforts in this project, and to Mike Clark at South Creek Limited for informing us of the progress.
