Game and Fish to Host Public Meeting on Bitter Creek Bark Park Pond Treatment Plans

ROCK SPRINGS — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will hold an informational meeting to discuss plans to treat the pond at Bitter Creek Bark Park after an illegal introduction of goldfish to the water.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 23, at the White Mountain Library. 

The illegally introduced goldfish were found in several Rock Springs area ponds following a tip from a concerned resident back in August of 2021. Members of the public are invited to attend this informational meeting to better understand the impacts illegally-introduced species can have on the ecosystem and to be informed about plans to remove the illegally introduced fish from the ponds this fall.
