Keynote Speaker: Thomas Dixon

Thomas Dixon is the grandson to E. Roland and Gladys Harriman, who donated to the state of Idaho what is now known as Harriman State Park or the Railroad Ranch. This 11,000-acre wildlife refuge in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, which opened to the public in 1982, is home to an abundance of elk, moose, sandhill cranes, trumpeter swans, and the occasional black or grizzly bear. The Henry’s Fork River meanders through the meadows of this beautiful Park, and its famous Millionaires Pool is known throughout the world. The Park is considered the crown jewel of the Idaho state park system, and the Henry’s Fork is known as the best dry fly fishery in the United States. Tom’s first visit to the Railroad Ranch was the summer of 1952 at the age of six. He caught his first fish on a ‘Wooly Worm,’ using a Leonard split bamboo rod and a Hardy Reel (which he still owns!). Thomas and his wife Linda, reside in Boise and have two grown children, Hilary and Adam. He received his BA in Business Management at Boise State University and spent 27 years in the banking industry in Montana and Idaho.

We hope you’ll come and enjoy hearing Tom speak firsthand about fishing Harriman State Park and the history that it such a special place holds.
