Byron Graber – Lifelong Lover of the Laramie River

This January, Byron Graber of Denver passed away. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but I believe many of us have walked the same stretches of the Laramie River that he so dearly loved.

His family wanted to honor Byron and his special connection with the Laramie and asked that in lieu of flowers that people send remembrances in support of the Laramie Valley Trout Unlimited chapter to help continue conservation efforts on Byron’s beloved river.

The support we received was incredible and LTVU will be determining what conservation projects we can best use these funds towards in the near future.

Thank you to the Graber family for your tremendous support of the chapter. Be assured that we will honor Byron’s memory here on the Laramie by ensuring the river is here for future generations to walk those same banks in search of wild trout.

Meeboer Aeration Project Almost Complete

The chapter has been heavily involved this fall with completing an aerator installation on Meeboer Lake to help eliminate winterkill events at this popular fishery.

We partnered with Game And Fish to take on this project and so far we have all the equipment installed. Currently we are just waiting on the completion of the power line run for everything to be fully operational.

Game and Fish released this video today detailing the installation in October. We had a great time out there getting this project in place and the chapter is looking forward to its completion.
