Conservation Project Summary:  Join the Cutthroat Chapter Saturday April 22, 2017 on urban Bear Creek to celebrate Earth Day in cooperation with the City of Lakewood.  After a lite provided breakfast we will help restore a nearby riparian area by planting willows, cottonwoods, and other native plants.  After a provided lunch we will return to the stream for a low key three hour fishing contest with acknowledgements for angling achievements such as most fish caught and most flies lost.  The data gained from the contest will help Colorado Parks and Wildlife in their hope to restore the brown trout fishery that historically resides in those waters.

Conservation Project Details:  8am-noon.  Bring gloves, appropriate clothing, drinking water, and sunscreen.  The park will provide all necessary tools.  A lite breakfast will be served and release forms for CCTU and City of Lakewood will be signed.  Work teams will be assigned and CCTU workers will carpool to the Bear Creek Greenbelt area.  Native plants for revegetation will be provided.  We will plant samplings until noon, when we will return to Bear Creek Lake Park for provided lunch.

Fishing Contest Location and Purpose:  1pm-4pm. Bear Creek Greenbelt area.  The conservation purpose of this low key contest is to provide Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW) and the City of Lakewood with a list and count of catchable species in urban Bear Creek.  This actual data will be used by both entities in conjunction with a systematic survey of this stretch by CPW in the fall of 2017.  The long term goal is to restore this stretch as a brown trout fishery.

Fishing Contest Rules:  You may compete as an individual, though teams of mentors and inexperienced folks are encouraged.  Contestants will keep a log of species, numbers, sizes, and locations of all fish caught in the time allotted.  Tongue-in-cheek tokens of appreciation of angling prowess will be handed out to teams for most fish caught, most flies lost, or any other category we manage to come up with.  Suggestions for other categories worthy of appreciation are welcomed!

Contest Restrictions:  Since this will be actual data will be used by CPW and the City of Lakewood, angling exaggerations must be avoided.  In light of this requirement, certain CCTU board members have been asked not to compete.  We are not going to name names, but you will see who doesn’t show up!
