Important water fight is percolating on Bighorn Lake

If you've ever enjoyed fishing the Bighorn below Yellowtail Dam, or hope to sometime in the future, you should read this.

A meeting on a rather interesting topic will take place at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Lovell, Wyo., Fire Hall regarding Bighorn Lake. Its ramifications could well spill over into Montana.

If it follows the path of previous meetings, it will deal with federal promises made, promises unfulfilled, the realities of drought and perhaps an action plan that would affect the trout fishery on Montana's portion of the Bighorn River below Yellowtail Dam.

Like so many hot-button issues in the West, this story comes down to water.  VIA The Billings Gazette LINK
