Cody - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department advises anglers that due to extensive road damage caused by runoff from snowmelt, access roads upstream of Clarks Fork Fish Hatchery near Clark are closed to vehicle access. 

Clarks Fork Fish Hatchery Superintendent  Dave Miller said that approximately one and a quarter miles of roads on Wyoming Game and Fish Commission owned land upstream of the hatchery are closed due to extremely muddy conditions and damage caused by significant snowmelt that occurred late last week.  The roads are commonly used by anglers throughout the year to access the Clarks Fork River.  “Anglers can still park at the hatchery and access the Clarks Fork River on foot,” Miller said. “Repair and reopening of the roads will depend on how fast they dry out.” 

For more information, contact the Clarks Fork Fish Hatchery at 307-645-3146.  The hatchery remains open to the public from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
