The Grand Junction Angler Roundtable will feature management information on waters in northwest Colorado. Discussion will include items contained in DOW regulations in Chapter 0 and Chapter 1, including designated habitat for cutthroat trout and the definition of “artificial” as it applies to flies and lures.
