JACKSON HOLE, WYO –It’s never too early to think about boating and fishing in Yellowstone National Park and authorities there announced today new rules concerning the spring/summer season.
In order to protect the nation’s first park from aquatic invasive species (AIS), authorities in Yellowstone banned the use of felt soled boots fishermen use for extra grip on slippery rocks, and implemented a new boating season.
“AIS could have devastating ecological, economic, and recreational impacts on Yellowstone National Park,” the park said in a press release. “They are costly to manage and extremely difficult to eradicate. Due to the urgent need to prevent these destructive species from entering the park, felt sole waders and boots worn by anglers will be banned permanently starting in 2018.”
Felt Sole Ban
Take action. Ensure that you don’t transport AIS to Yellowstone and that your watercraft will be permitted to launch:
