All plates cups and utensils are fully bio-degradable. Recycling containers are strategically placed throughout the event.
The day kicks-off at 9 a.m. with the Fishing Derby registration. The Derby is free and takes place during the week that fishing in Colorado is also free. Colorado residents and state visitors will have the opportunity to fish without a license on Saturday June 6th, and Sunday June 7th as part of the annual "Colorado Free Fishing Days". Keystone Guests should bring their gear to cast a line into the Snake River.
The free fishing days are set aside each year for the first full weekend in June as part of ongoing efforts by the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) to introduce people to the sport of fishing. "We want people to take advantage of this opportunity, held each year in conjunction with National Fishing and Boating Week, to try and get outdoors with their family and friends and give fishing a try", said Debbie Lininger, Marketing Director. "The more people we can introduce to the wonderful recreational angling opportunities we have in Colorado, the better it will be for Colorado’s natural resources in the future".
