Answers about fishing & stream access

If you're an angler in Utah — especially one who likes to fish rivers and streams — you've probably heard about House Bill 141.

And what you've heard may have left you confused about what the bill does and doesn't do.

The Utah Legislature passed the bill during this past legislative session. Gov. Gary Herbert signed the bill on March 31, 2010.

To help clear up the confusion and get correct information to anglers, the Division of Wildlife Resources has placed some information on its Web site.

The information is available at wildlife.utah.gov/streamaccess.

The new law goes into effect May 11, 2010.
