The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will be holding an Angler Roundtable at 7 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Summit County Community and Senior Center near Frisco.Members of the public, especially those who fish in the area, are invited to attend the meeting and provide input.The Colorado Wildlife Commission reviews statewide fishing regulations every five years. While emergency changes can be made at any time, the five-year fishing regulation process is the best opportunity for anglers to have input on fishing regulations. A series of public meetings, called “Angler Roundtables,” are being set up across the state to solicit public comments on existing and proposed regulations. Comments and suggestions from those meetings will be compiled for an initial presentation in front of the Wildlife Commission in March 2005. Additional meetings may be held to gather comments on draft regulations during summer 2005 with final approval expected from the Wildlife Commission in September 2005. Topics to be discussed at the Frisco Angler Roundtable include potential changes to specific water and statewide fishing regulations for 2005, fishing issues specific to area lakes and the upper Colorado River basin, and fish stocking plans for 2005 in the area.In addition, time will be available to ask questions related to other fisheries issues.
