The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will host a public forum in Pueblo May 4 to discuss the fishing outlook for the 2005 season.

DOW fisheries biologists will give a preview on the best bets for warmwater and trout fishing in Southeast Colorado and South Park.

The DOW will also provide information on fish populations in regional lakes and streams, stocking plans, reservoir water levels and stream flows, whirling disease, status of greenback cutthroat trout, and high lake fishing.

“Anglers are asked to come eager to talk about fishing in the Arkansas and Upper South Platte basins, and bring their questions, ideas and suggestions,” encouraged Doug Krieger, Senior Fish Biologist for the Southeast Region. “We will have a great opportunity to share some information and ideas.”

The DOW staff will also discuss draft fishing regulations for the 2006-2010 period that will be presented to the Colorado Wildlife Commission at their July meeting. Subjects will include — but are not limited to — size and bag limits, stocking schedules, fishing regulations and other items of concern to anglers. Angler comments and suggestions are welcome.

The Pueblo meeting is at the DOW Hunter Safety Building on 2600 W. Mesa at 7 p.m. on May 4.
