You can learn more about the changes that are being considered—and let the biologists know your thoughts about the ideas—by taking a brief poll at the Division of Wildlife Resources' website.
The poll is available at wildlife.utah.gov/2013fishingsurvey.
The poll should take about five to 10 minutes to complete.
Please take the poll no later than June 15.

You can share your own ideas about fishing changes you'd like to see in Utah one of three ways:
When it comes to fishing, Cushing says the DWR often hears only from organized groups. "In addition to hearing from the fishing groups," he says, "we want to hear from individual anglers. We hope those who don't belong to a fishing group will share their ideas with us too."
Cushing says even though 2013 is still months away, the biologists need time before September to consider your ideas. "Please get your ideas to us no later than June 15," he says.
After exploring your ideas, the biologists will present their final recommendations to the public in September.
The Utah Wildlife Board will make the final decision on Nov. 1.
