LEARN HOW TO KEEP FISH HEALTHY WHILE FISHING DURING A DROUGHT

As we experience drought conditions here in the Wood River Valley, remember these tips to keep fish healthy!

1. Fish in the morning or evening when water temps are cooler

2. Keep fish that you catch in the water as much as possible… use a net!

3. Consider checking water temps later in the day, and limit fishing when water temps reach 68-70 degrees.

Have fun out there! Together we can keep our fish populations healthy through this hot summer.

Thanks to people like you, the new Simons Bauer Preserve, will provide critical wildlife habitat as well as another refuge for people to enjoy the peace of nature. We opened a section of the Preserve early in response to the urgent need for more space. Over the next several months, we’ll be working to secure the rest of the funding needed to restore wildlife habitat and establish more trails to connect the Haiely Greenway trails into Croy Canyon. 

 It’s a new beginning, a ray of hope, a jump-start to this spring and summer as we pull together and move through this trying time. Your generosity and compassion will make that possible—and for that we are so very grateful. If ever our community needed to come together it is now.
