Text of sign:

 

River Feast

 

This bend in the river attracts water birds year-round.  Here the Yellowstone is broad, slow-moving, and shallow a place where

trout and aquatic vegetation can thrive.  Bald eagles, pelicans, and osprey catch fish here; mallards and Canada geese bob for

underwater plants.  

 

The birds are extremely sensitive to human disturbance.  Except for two short stretches open to catch-and-release fishing, the 

Yellowstone River is closed to fisherman throughout Hayden Valley.

 

In winter watch for the trumpeter swans along this ice-free section.  Thermal discharge warms the river enough to keep it open all

year.
