It’s 8:00 a.m. on one of the last days of April and two officials from the Division of Wildlife Resources are loading up their boat at the Bear Lake State Park Marina. They are joined by two volunteers for today’s fisheries sampling, the last one scheduled for the Spring.

The Utah Department of Natural Resources and the Division of Wildlife Resources renewed their Hunter Access Agreement with the State of Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration. The contract keeps 3.4 million acres of Utah trust lands open to hunters and anglers as well as those interested in viewing wildlife.

For thirty years, volunteers from businesses, schools and church groups have been taking children with disabilities fishing. UPR’s Nick Herrmann spent the day at Salem Pond watching and recording as state wildlife workers taught more than a thousand youth with special needs the art of baiting and catching fish.
