Description: Fisheries resources are finite and conflicts may arise when several groups compete for the same resource. Diverse groups of anglers often derive different benefits and possess different preferences concerning the way a resource should be managed. This paper examines the conflict which arose when new regulations were proposed for reaches of ldaho's Big Wood River. One organized group of anglers lobbied for specific restrictive regulations. Another group of anglers responded and successfully challenged the new regulations in court. We describe factors contributing to the controversy and discuss aspects of the conflict that may be instructive for anglers and management agencies. We examine philosophical questions concerning future management of wild trout streams.
