Default History of Utah Fishing

From dynamite to fishing with corn the rules and regulation of fishing in Utah have changed a lot since 1853. I searched out all the years laws and proclamations and put them in one article with a bunch of fishing history thrown in. Please give it a read and let me know what you think.

Very cool summary.

Found this one particularly interesting:

"1967 – New state record kokanee slamon is caught at Utah Lake weighing 4 pounds by Leo Park."

I had no idea there were kokes in Utah Lake.

I'm pretty sure that everything has been tried in Utah Lake.

It surprised me that they have been having problems with carp ever since they were planted into Utah Lake.

Personally the coolest transplant attempt was whales in the Great Salt Lake. They figured the whales breath air and could filter feed the brine shrimp. Didnt really think out processing the high salt content water for water needs very well though.
