The change is not...

The lines of anglers waiting to cover prime trout beats bear witness to a need Colorado might someday rise to meet, if anyone heeds a small change in wording of a policy paper wildlife commissioners approved last month. For decades, trout fishers have been growing in number. The crowding is conspicuous, especially among fly fishers who favor quality trout habitats, which Colorado calls Gold Medal waters.
