Whats next? The deer? Oh shoot! They did that! And now the deer population is finally making a comback south of Craig. The pike? Big shocker they got them too. The elk? Wait for another bad winter and they should thin out again. The way I see it if the wildlife managers would stop managing our wildlife, there would be more to go around!! But there is something to be thankful for. You can enjoy a nice day of fishing the river without the added distractions of other fisherman or fish for that matter.

Officials: Fish will not be transferred
Officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Denver announced last week that they will begin euthanizing nonnative smallmouth bass that they remove from the Yampa River in spring rather than transferring them to Elkhead Reservoir east of Craig. Too many of the relocated bass are escaping over the dam spillway, they say, and returning to the Yampa, where they threaten endangered native fish.
