Fishing at Red Fleet to be discussed at Jan. 16 open house

Vernal » Division of Wildlife Resources biologists are inviting the public to a Jan. 16 open house to discuss the future of the Red Fleet Reservoir fishery.

The open house, scheduled for 4-7 p.m., will be in the conference room at the DWR’s new Northeastern Region office, 318 N. Vernal Ave., in Vernal.

"Most of the audience will probably be anglers, but all members of the public are invited to attend," says Trina Hedrick, DWR regional aquatics manager. "We’re in the early stages of planning for the future of the reservoir’s fishery, and we want to hear the public’s ideas."

At the open house, biologists will provide information from fisheries studies conducted at the reservoir in 2011 and 2012, discuss problems observed from the illegal introduction of walleye to the reservoir and request comments and concerns from the public regarding a proposed rotenone treatment at the reservoir.

Hedrick says DWR biologists will informally discuss information in small groups and people can ask questions or write down comments for the biologists to consider during the planning phases of the project.

"When talking about the future of a fishery," Hedrick says, "there are always sideboards, and Red Fleet is no exception. However, if the public comes up with some good ideas, we do have the ability to incorporate some of their requests."

For more information about the open house, call the DWR’s Northeastern Region office at 435-781-9453.
