“Before Fishing Bridge closed to fishing in 1973, visitors fished here elbow to elbow -- their hooks snagging each other as well as passing motorists. Regulations were changed when park managers realized that fishing from this bridge was decimating the trout populations
Now this spawning area, vital to both river and lake fish, is recovering. Watch for white pelicans -- their huge yellow beaks ready to catch a meal -- and other fish-eating birds. After an absence of many decades, they have returned!”
