Green River Fish Crew samples area reservoirs

Green River Fisheries Biologist Troy Laughlin and fisheries technician Mitch McGruder also gill netted Fontenelle Reservoir with help from Green River Habitat Biologist Kevin Spence, I&E Specialist Lucy Wold and AIS Crew Leader Wes Gordon. Two retired school teachers from Rock Springs also assisted. 

Gill netting is a common, regular fish sampling practice that all fisheries managers use to collect fish species to gain a better idea of how the fish are doing in the reservoir; their length, weight and stomach contents are recorded. Summer is here, finally. The water level at Big Sandy Reservoir is good and the boat ramp is accessible at this writing in early June.
