You can learn more about the changes the biologists are considering — and let them know your thoughts about the ideas — by taking a brief survey at the Division of Wildlife Resources' website.
The survey is available online.
The survey consists of nine questions. It should take about five to 10 minutes to complete.
Please take the survey no later than June 7.
Your own ideas
You can share your own ideas about how to make fishing better in Utah one of three ways:
Cushing says organized fishing groups are often the only anglers DWR biologists hear from. "In addition to 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 2014 is still months away, the biologists need time before September to consider your ideas. "Please get your ideas to us no later than June 7," he says.
After evaluating your ideas, the biologists will present their final recommendations at Regional Advisory Council meetings in September. The Utah Wildlife Board will make the final decision about Utah's 2014 fishing rules at a meeting on Nov. 7.
