Angler roundtables in northwest Colorado this month
April 12, 2010
The Colorado Division of Wildlife is hosting angler roundtables throughout northwest Colorado to discuss the agency’s five-year review of fishing regulations. Angler roundtables are open to the public and anyone interested in fishing is encouraged to attend.
Local Angler roundtables will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the following locations:
Meeker: April 22, Mountain Valley Bank (400 Main St.)
Granby: April 26, Granby Community Center (3rd and Jasper)
Glenwood Springs: April 27, Glenwood Springs Community Center (100 Wolfsohn Rd.)
Grand Junction: April 28, Ramada Inn (752 Horizon Dr.)
Steamboat Springs: April 29, DOW/USFS Office (925 Weiss Dr.)
Angler roundtables are public meetings designed to provide people who fish with the opportunity to hear about DOW management and to ask questions or provide suggestions. In addition to discussing regulation changes, anglers can get information or ask questions about local fishing opportunities.
After receiving public input, DOW staff will develop draft regulations to present to the Colorado Wildlife Commission in September. Those draft regulations will receive additional public review and commission discussion before formal adoption by the commission in November.
Every year more than 600,000 people buy fishing licenses in Colorado. Fishing generates about $1.2 billion in recreation revenue each year in the state.
