River Ambassador Takes Up His Post

Pistono

The Snake River Fund has made it possible for River Ambassador Jay Pistono to return this year to the river’s Wilson-South Park stretch to greet visitors, educate boaters and do what he can to help ease congestion during times of heavy use at the Wilson and South Park boat ramps. Funding for the position comes from grants provided by the Bureau of Land Management and Wyoming Game and Fish Department.  Pistono answers questions about fishing and river flows, helps boaters unload heavy rafts, helps dories launch and land, inspects boat hulls for invasive species, takes water temperature measurements, directs buses in turning around, helps find lost items and logs statistics about user volumes.  Snake River Fund officials announced that this year, Pistono will have some help on the busier days from Volunteer Eliot Neal of the Snake River Fund.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
