Improvements planned in August for Green River Public Access Area near Daniel (posted 7/27/2021)
Wyoming Game & Fish
PINEDALE, WYOMING – Green River anglers in the Pinedale area can expect improved river access and fishing this fall. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be improving boat access at the Department’s Daniel Public Access Area along the Green River some 12 miles west of Pinedale. The project will also enhance fish habitat on approximately 1,800 feet of river in this area.

The two-week project is set to begin Monday, August 9, 2021. No public access closures are anticipated, but anglers and river users are advised that construction will be occurring on weekdays and that minor delays may occur due to in-stream work. There also may be slightly elevated sediment in the river downstream of the project with heavy equipment working in the river or along the banks.

While the river access will not be closed, river users will be asked to park on along the road (Pape Road) on August 9, 10, and 11 to accommodate crews working on the parking area at the Public Access Area.

In addition to the improved boat ramp, a variety of stream structures will be constructed using wood and rock. These structures will reduce bank erosion and provide hiding cover for fish.

These habitat enhancements are designed to hold more fish in the reach, improving the fishing for both boat and bank anglers.

For more information about the project, please contact Wyoming Game and Fish Pinedale Habitat Biologist Luke Schultz at 307-367-4353.


Pinedale anglers encouraged to adjust fishing practices in high heat, drought (posted 7/27/2021)
Sara Dirienzo, Public Information Officer, Wyoming Game & Fish
PINEDALE, WYOMING - As Wyoming faces with another year of drought, trout are grappling with reduced food and oxygen, and in many instances, their very survival. The conditions have fish managers with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department concerned about the impacts on fish in many of the local rivers and lakes. As the water levels drop, the temperature rises. Warm water is a threat to trout and other cold water species.

Pinedale Fisheries Supervisor, Hilda Sexauer, says trout experience significant mortality at prolonged exposure to water temperatures greater than 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and brief exposure to temperatures over 80 degrees are lethal.

"Unfortunately, we anticipate there will be fish kills this summer due to high water temperatures and low oxygen," Sexauer said.

Fish stress quicker in warmer water because the water holds less oxygen, which greatly hampers a fish's ability to recover from the rigors of being caught. As water temperature approaches 70 degrees the chance for any fish species to survive being caught and released is greatly reduced.

Water temperature is particularly important for anglers practicing catch and release or where our regulations require fish to be released. The department asks all anglers practicing catch and release to consider the following during the dog days of summer:
• Fish early in the morning while water temperature is cooler.
• Carry a pocket thermometer and monitor the water temperature.
• If the water temperature is at or above 70 degrees, consider keeping what you catch within the regulations.
• As water temperature increases, using the proper techniques to catch and release a fish become increasingly more important to help ensure the fish has a chance to survive:
o Play and land fish as rapidly as possible to reduce exhaustion stress.
o Keep the fish in the water as much as possible.
o Do not squeeze the fish or place fingers in the gills.
o Remove the hook gently. If hooked deeply, cut the leader.
o Flies and lures are recommended whenever many fish are being caught and released.
o Barbless hooks allow easier hook removal.
o If a fish is exhausted and cannot hold itself
upright, and if regulations allow, consider having it for supper because the fish has a poor chance of surviving.

These are not new regulations, just recommendations to assist with the conservation of the fishery resource. If water temperatures are high, perhaps fish only during the very early morning or take a trip to the high country.

Anglers who need more information can contact Hilda Sexauer, Pete Cavalli or Darren Rhea at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department Pinedale Regional office, 307-367-4352.

Message from Pinedale Mayor Matt Murdock (posted 7/23/2021)
Matt Murdock, Mayor, Town of Pinedale
To the Town of Pinedale,
In the course of governing the Town, we will inevitably address controversial topics making decisions that upset someone. Seldom do we ever make everyone happy. We work to make the process as transparent and public as possible, publishing announcements and agendas in local media, and we make multiple opportunities for residents to speak to us or throughout our public meetings. No matter what you may think, we the electeds and the staff sincerely work to make the best laws for the good of the town.

However, many times information gets misunderstood or twisted and then passed on, especially in our fast-paced world of social media. What particularly saddens me is when criticism becomes attack and attack becomes personal – especially when that criticism attacks our hard-working staff who’ve been tasked by me and the Council. The five of us elected Council members signed up for the scrutiny and the criticism, (we sometimes ask ourselves why) and I can attest after 8 years of being on Council that we all genuinely want to do well by Pinedale. Town staff on the other hand is employed to carry out our decisions and policies, advising us when and where they can, and as Mayor I am very proud of our staff – they have been a major blessing to all of us and continue to make the Town a better place. But personal attacks on them for doing their job is malicious, unjust and unacceptable, undermining their effectiveness and willingness to serve.

Which is why it distresses me that social media and "keyboard warriors" have been so brutal and false in their attacks on our Planning & Zoning Administrator – Ronnie Tambourine – over the discussion of food trucks. Ronnie was the best and most qualified applicant for that post, and I was pleased to offer him the job in February 2021. His qualifications, character, interests and background made him a great pick for a community facing increasing growing pains. There are many challenges coming to our community that we as a Council are working to mitigate and guide for the growth of Pinedale while protecting what makes Pinedale so special. He and the rest of staff work to provide advice and help on issues we – your elected officials – task them with. To carry a disagreement over policy into personal, visceral attacks on a man and his family is wrong and is the worst aberrant from what makes Pinedale so wonderful.

The latest controversial topic, food vendors, has been on our list of topics to treat for over a year, since the 2020 Rendevous when major gaps in our code become apparent. The work we’re now doing to amend that code is a result of watching how the 2017 code has played out. Someone may disagree with how the new code is being drafted but to personally attack Ronnie, who joined the Town after we began working on this topic, is not only mean, but also wrong. Ronnie has worked hard to get us the best information possible so that we may make the most informed decisions. Which is why I’m writing to say -

Thank you, Ronnie, for your hard work and your commitment to a better Pinedale. (and thank you, Maureen, Abram, Amy, Kevin, Spencer, Emily, Anna, Olivia, Ron, Lance, Justin, Michelle, Mary, Josh, Randy, Grover and Ken.)

Sincerely,
Matt W. Murdock, Mayor

Emergency services conduct radio coverage testing through the county (posted 7/23/2021)
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
Rocky Mountain Communications Systems (RMCS) out of Casper, WY, along with Sublette County emergency services employees (Fire, Law and EMS) will be conducting coverage testing beginning Monday, July 26th, extending over the next week-and-a-half in to August. There will be two RMCS service trucks, and one red Ford F250 (see attached photos) that will be covering approximately 6,000 established zones or sectors within Sublette County. Our goal is to use as many public roadways as practical to complete this testing. If we should have to travel on to a private road, a call from the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office to the land owner will be made to ask for permission.

The coverage testing is to ensure there aren’t any "dead spots" in critical radio communication between Sublette County dispatch and first responders on our Sublette County Interoperable Radio System (SIRS).

KC Lehr, Sublette County Sheriff

July 2021 Gardens of Beauty
July 2021 Gardens of Beauty
Sage & Snow Garden Club Gardens of Beauty – July 2021 (posted 7/21/2021)
Sage & Snow Garden Club
July 9, 2021 - Julie Early and Barney Snyder, 40 Hay Meadow Drive, near Pinedale, are the Sage and Snow Garden Club’s second Garden of Beauty Award for 2021. Julie grew up on the Swain Ranch on the Green River. Most of her beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees were transplanted from her childhood home and her mother, Edna Swain’s flower gardens. Scattered about her large landscaped yard are oriental poppies, lupine, lilies, delphiniums, cattails, tansy, Wood’s rose, flax, iris (including a beautiful white variety), Maltese cross, dames’ rocket, and Billy Wood’s flowers (named by Billy Wood who homesteaded the ranch). Julie and Barney transplanted gooseberries, honeysuckles, and chokecherries from the home place. Most of the trees came from the ranch as well: poplars, lodgepole pines, spruce, aspen, cottonwoods, and willows. The ranch washtub is full of violas and marigolds. Water troughs are filled with radishes, carrots, lettuce, strawberries, onions, zucchini, beets, and garlic. Julie’s greenhouse is full of mineral lick tubs and other containers growing tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, cucumbers, peas, climbing beans, roses, and her mother’s geraniums. The greenhouse is surrounded by pots of flowers, as well as a sunflower patch planted by her granddaughter, Daisy Early. Over the years, Julie and Barney have transformed a barren hay meadow into a beautiful botanical paradise.

July 16, 2021 - Dorothy and Wayne Fornstrom The Sage and Snow Garden Club has selected Dorothy and Wayne Fornstrom’s beautiful gardens at 39 Granite Lane as this week’s Garden of Beauty. Their grandsons, Danner and Dayson, enjoy playing in their beautiful and spacious backyard. Dorothy is a "little bit of everything" gardener. She has an herb garden in a wheelbarrow, lick tubs of cucumbers and potatoes, stock tanks with flowers and shrubs, and islands of trees. A border of sagebrush and potentillas, sprinkled with poppies, rhubarb, columbine, delphiniums, daisies, salvia, and iris surround the yard. Pots of colorful petunias, verbena, and geraniums adorn the shaded seating areas. Dorothy has an outdoor propagation station where she grows many native plants from seed to add to her gardens. However, many of the trees, shrubs, and flowers are seeded by the birds that visit her feeders and nest in the trees. The Garden Club has selected Dorothy and Wayne’s beautiful yard for the final stop on their Annual Garden Tour and Dinner, planned for Saturday, August 14.

July 23, 2021 - Michele and Bill Doyle The colorful array of flowers adorning the large deck and patio at 120 Fox Willow Drive in Pinedale earned the Sage and Snow Garden of Beauty Award for the week for gardeners Michele and Bill Doyle. They have created a spectacular display of container gardens, featuring marigolds, petunias, pansies, alyssum, lobelia, verbena, geraniums, daisies, and salvia. But even more noteworthy is their inclusion of some unusual flowers for our area: cannas, begonias, fuchsias, dahlias, geraniums, and mallow. The flowers are big and beautiful; and Michele attributes the growth to Black Gold potting soil, Miracle Grow fertilizer, plenty of water, and lots of love and care. The flowers attract hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies to their gardens, much to the enjoyment of the Doyles and their neighbors.

Garden of Beauty – Karen & Ole Skinner (posted 7/5/2021)
Sage and Snow Garden Club
July 2, 2021 – Karen and Ole Skinner of 126 Fayette Pole Creek Road, Pinedale, are the first recipients of the Sage and Snow Garden Club’s Garden of Beauty Award for 2021. Their spacious yard features a variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers, including some colorful hollyhocks that return year after year. Two years ago, Ole and Karen built a large greenhouse from recycled windows and wood. In their indoor garden beds, they grow cabbages, tomatoes, potatoes, radishes, lettuce, squash, cucumbers, carrots, beets, beans, and asparagus. Karen and Ole pride themselves on repurposing materials that others have discarded. Many of their trees are castoffs from landscaping projects at large estates in Sun Valley, Idaho. Ole, the youngest son of Clem and Viola Skinner and one of six Skinner brothers, was born in Pinedale and was part of the famed Skinner Brothers Wilderness School and Outfitters for many years.
