Fishing Bridge

In the Spirit of Silly Tuesday...

Fishing Bridge, no fishing!

The original Fishing Bridge Yellowstone Park was built in 1902 as a rough-hewn log bridge. Historically, it was a favorite spot for fisherman to come and get a great catch. The bridge was rebuilt in 1937. Currently the bridge is closed to fishing because it is a major spawning location for cutthroat trout, but is used as a place to observe the fish swimming below.

Ha, ha, ha. Well, technically they allow you a yard for fishing, not bad at all :-)

@Francisco Romero: Maybe, but I wouldn't want to test them on it. Those Rangers are pretty strict. ;-)
