PIKE: A story in Tuesday’s Post Independent about northern pike in the reservoir at Rifle Gap incorrectly summarized comments about species of fish in the reservoir. The report mentioned in the article said northern pike have increased in population dramatically. It said the pike threaten other species of sport fish approved for management in the reservoir, and not other native species as the article stated. Speaking in broader terms beyond just Rifle Gap, the report had said illegal stocking of fish undermines the state’s ability to protect and preserve native species of fish.Post Independent, Glenwood Springs Colorado CO
