​Baggs Game Warden Kim Olson and Green River Wildlife Biologist Patrick Burke tranquilized the two sparring bull elk and they ran off when they woke up with no hard feelings, right? Thanks to Olson and Christopher Martin for this video.

The 2019 Burbot Bash Ice Fishing Derby on Flaming Gorge Reservoir took place January 25, 26 and 27, 2019. More than 200 fishing teams help to remove thousands of illegally introduced burbot from the reservoir. A big thanks to everyone who participated!  on Fontenelle Reservoir, February 8-10, and the Kemmerer Lions Club Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Viva Naughton February 16 and 17, 2019

Team Kings of Ling hold up one of the large burbot they caught at the 2019 Ding the Ling Ice Fishing Derby. 

The derby was fun and a bright spot on the very cold weekend! More than 100 teams braved the cold to try their luck catching burbot (a.k.a. ling) through the ice. The derby officially ended Sunday, February 10 after the check-in station officially closed at 10:00 AM. Thanks to everyone who made this derby possible and for all of the sponsors! The 2019 Ding the Ling Ice Fishing Derby was held February 8-10. ​The event was a success thanks to the La Barge Activities Committee. The nights were very cold with 20 below zero without the windchill! Green River Fisheries Biologist Troy Laughlin said things went very smooth and I appreciate your hard work.  Overall we had 142 participants and 479 burbot removed.  Not too bad considering this was only the 3rd year of the derby. 

The 2019 Ding the Ling Ice Fishing Derby was held February 8,9 and 10 on Fontenelle Reservoir. Please click here to review the poster for more details.
