Chestnut Ridge TU meeting is being held at the Washington Gander Mountain, 7pm April 8th 2009. Noted outdoor writer Ben Moyer will speak on fishing for the rare greenback cutthroat. Although the greenback cutthroat was considered extinct by the 1930s, in 1957 a population was discovered in Rocky Mountain National Park in the Big Thompson River, a tributary of the South Platte. Additional populations were found in 1965 and 1970, making possible the listing of the subspecies as endangered under the 1973 Endangered Species Act. Recovery efforts for the greenback cutthroat by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are ongoing and seemed to have made it possible to upgrade its status to threatened. Fishing is allowed only on a catch and release basis.
