Last Year, Ryan Newman of Rocky Mountain Outfitters posted about a productive river-cleanup event on the Lower Provo River in Utah, in which volunteers worked hard to remove debris from the water and the banks. This year, RMO combined efforts with Fish for Garbage and Brighton Anglers to reach even more people to help clean up their favorite river. According to Ryan, “So many people showed up and had a great time. It was awesome.”

That is quite a haul for a single day of “garbage fishing.”

As an incentive, RMO gave away a trip to one lucky volunteer.
