YELLOWSTONE, Wyo. – Yellowstone National Park encourages the public to get ready for boating and fishing season, which begins on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Boaters and anglers should clean, drain, and dry all boats and equipment prior to arriving in the park to minimize the risk of introducing aquatic invasive species (AIS) into Yellowstone’s waters. Watercraft equipped with sealed internal ballast tanks are temporarily banned from all park waters as inspections cannot always detect these invaders in these types of boats. Boaters and anglers should also be aware of temporary changes due to COVID-19.
- Clean all plants, animals, mud, sand, and other debris from your boat, anchor, boots, and equipment. Use high-pressure, hot (120-140F) water if possible.
- Drain all water from your boat including the motor, bilge, livewell, and other compartments before you arrive. Leave drain plugs out during transport. Do not dump water or organisms from one water body into another.
- Dry all compartments and equipment in the sun for five days.
