Supporting CPW fin clipping effort at the Mt. Shavano Hatchery

We are setting up our 2017 projects

We have been working closely with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Northeast team to define volunteer projects that will directly and positively effect our fishing in the South Park area for this year, finally getting ready to work around Bear Creek now that the NEPA process is coming to completion, and working to restore greenbacks into the South Platte Basin.
