August 03, 2017

Trout Management Program - Calling all Anglers and Stakeholders

Friends of the Rivers urges you to particpate in this planning for our fisheries and our watershed.

SAVE THESE DATES! - August 3 and then August 24. - Same times and place

Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. - ASUMH Campus - Vada Sheid Community Development Center, Convention Rooms A & B.

Current Tailwater plans were developed in 2007 with the plan developed to deal with aspects of the hatchery, education, access, enforcement and more.

Now you are needed to help determine if the strategies have worked and what your current expectations as a fisher, or landowner are.

Those attending will be organized in working groups to provide the information about the fisheries.

Thursday, August 24, 2017  - focuses on fish and habitat data on both Bull Shoals and Nofork Tailwaters, and will list possible management options. Stakeholder participants in this workshop will be asked to comment on these options.  Ms. Christy Graham and Tim Burnley present this information.

A 3rd workshop will be offered for stakeholders to comment on the draft plan itself.  Date TBA

Friends of the Rivers appreciates the work and leadership of our AGFC - if you have questions they ask you to contact them.
