GARDEN CITY – Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources have scheduled a public meeting on Tuesday, April 16 at 6 p.m. to share updates on the Bear Lake fishery, as well as work plans for 2024.

The meeting will be held at the Garden City Convention Center’s Lakeside Room located at 69 N. Parkway in Garden City.
