Yellowstone Park Lifts Restrictions

August 23, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

According to the National Park Service Web site, all temperature-related restrictions on fishing Yellowstone were lifted yesterday. “Cooler temperatures allowed Yellowstone National Park officials to lift mandatory fishing restrictions from all of the park’s rivers and creeks, effective at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 22. Biologists will continue to evaluate conditions and reinstate restrictions if necessary.” Restrictions were originally imposed on July 21 after high water temperatures caused a number of fish kills.
