Yellowstone updates fishing regulations
 
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) Anglers should be aware of some new fishing regulations at Yellowstone National Park that aim to help protect native fish species.

The limit on non-native fish caught in the park's Native Trout Conservation Area has been eliminated. This includes all park waters except the Madison and Firehole rivers, the Gibbon River below Gibbon Falls, and Lewis and Shoshone lakes.

Rainbow or brook trout caught in the Lamar River drainage must be harvested in order to protect native cutthroat trout in the headwater reaches of the drainage. This includes Slough (slew) and Soda Butte Creeks.

Anglers are also reminded that all lake trout caught in Yellowstone Lake must be killed to help cutthroat trout restoration efforts.

All native fish including cutthroat trout, mountain whitefish and Arctic grayling must be released unharmed.
