Έ ~ • • iiiiii~iΈ Photo by Elizabeth Canfield SCOTT E. NORELIUS By the Ume this is published the turkey season win be open and fishing should start getting better. Turkey licenses can be purchased from any license selling agent in the county this spring and you may as well get your fishing license at the same time. ~'ne spring wild turkey season runs from April 20 through May 25 again thls year, Just as it has for the past six years. The regulation allows for any male wild turkey or any wild turkey with a visible beard to be harvested. Because the spring season is limited to birds with a visible beard, the beard must be leR naturally attached to the blrd In the field and when being transported. Shooting hdurs are from daylight until dark. The bag limit is one spring turkey and one fall turkey per hunter per year. There is no set minimum age to legally hunt wild turkeys here in Wyoming. The only requirement that may limit a young hunter is that they must successfully pass a Hunter Safety class. When in the field all hunters born after January I, 1988 must be able to exhibit their hunter safety card, turkey license and conservation stamp. Hunters born before 1966 only need the license and stamp. Rifles using center fire cartridges, muzzle-loading rifles or rifles of .22 magnum caliber may be used to take wild turkeys. Shotguns not larger than I 0 gauge may also be used to harvest these birds. Auto-loading and pump shotguns must be plugged to admit no more than one shell in the chamber and two in the magazine. Archery tackle may also be used to hunt turkeys. Be sure to sign, date and detach the turkey carcass coupon before leaving the site of the kill. This too is part of a safe, successful and enjoyable spring hunt. Last week the guys from Story Hatchery brought over 320 catchable rainbow trout for the Sundance Fairgrounds Pond and 400 of these same fish for Medicine Lake. This week the Tiller Springs Hatchery near Lovell will bring over 1,500 catchable rainbows for Cook Lake. By the end of the month Story will do a repeat performance. In May both Story and Tiller Hatcheries will stock these same ponds again. So the fishing In the area should start to improve. Because Cook Lake, Medicine Lake and Sundance Pond do not have gravel bottoms, there is no way for these fishing holes to be self- sustaining. The only way to keep trout in these waters is to stock them several times each year. Rainbow trout are fairly easy to raise and also easy to catch, so that is why we stock rainbows. There Is a good, sustaining population of brook trout in Beaver Creek, both above and below Cook Lake, and brown trout are exiremely prolific In Sand Creek. Both of these creeks fulfill the habitat needs of the respective trout populations. Keyhole Reservoir provides almost every- thing that northern pike and walleye require to sustain those popula- tions. As the run-offsubeides and the water warms up a little bit the fish will get more active. Spring has officially sprung, now it is time to go hunting and fishing, but don't forget your license. recently of Baggs, be in the eighth grade next year wlll be Joining him here In June. supervisor with theMyers and his wife have four of Trans- children.

Currently Keyhole Reservoir is at 4098.75 with storage of 188,000 acre-feet. OnApri119, a release of 150 to 200 cfs will begin. This release is a result of recent precipitation which has brought the reservoir to Its highest elevation since 1978. This release will continue until the reservoir is lowered six inches and approximately 10,O00 acre-feet of storage is available. Inflows at Deerfield Reservoir have continued at record levels all winter. Pactola Reservoir is full and current releases are approxi- mately 175 cfs. Inflows to Pactola for the month of March were the second highest in 42 years of record. Storage at Belle Fourche Res- ervoir is well above average for this time of year. It is currently at elevation 2973.8 R, approxi- mately 15 Inches from full, and will be filled prior to the begin- ning of the Irrigation season. II ' DR'.
