Text of sign:

 

Off the Hook

 

Historic Fishing Bridge

 

Before Fishing Bridge closed to fishing in 1973, visitors fished here elbow to elbow - their snagging each other as well as passing

motorists.  Regulations were changed when park managers realized that fishing from this bridge was decimating the trout population.

Now this spawning area, vital to both river and lake fish is recovering.  Watch for white pelicans - their huge yellow beaks ready 

to catch a meal - and other fish eating birds.  After an absence of many decades, they have returned.

 

Graphics on the sign
