Biologists address walleye concerns

WORLAND — Citizens concerned with the walleye population at Boysen State Park discussed their angst about the declining numbers with Game and Fish biologist Joe Deromedi Thursday in an open forum in Worland.
“It’s uncertain if we stock walleye, that you’ll get the bang for the buck. At Boysen when the conditions are good the walleye population benefits. When the conditions are bad it’s hard for us to overcome,” said Deromedi. “Boysen for the last five years has been bad (for walleye), with the exception of the past two years. Boysen and the walleye population would benefit from the stocking of gizzard shad, but whatever we put downstream ends upstream.”
“We’ve discussed with Montana twice about stocking gizzard shad into Boysen and they said no. Their fear is the shad will cause problems with paddle fish and other native species. Montana’s still concerned the shad could get into their waters. Our state doesn’t need Montana’s approval, but we like to work with other biologists and be good neighbors. If we did anything on our side that hurt native species in another state, as a biologist we know we did wrong,” said Deromedi.

Worland businesses weather road closure

By Zach Spadt

WORLAND – The recent closure of U.S. 20 in Wind River Canyon was barely a blip on the radar for Worland businesses, but local business did experience shipping delays.
Bloedorn Lumber Contractor Sales Representative Shane Foote said the closures caused a few shipments to come in a day late, but most contractors were able to continue working.
According to Wyoming Department of Transportation Public Affairs Officer Cody Beers, the road was closed at 5 p.m. due to torrential rain storms causing falling rocks and mud slides.
He said in an interview Monday, “There was so much rain the ground couldn’t handle it. There were rocks and debris coming down. We had water and waterfalls where we usually don’t have anything (in the canyon).”
