CHEYENNE - Looking for a place to fish in Wyoming? Do you have questions about how to get to a particular stream or lake? Or maybe you want to know what species of fish are available in a given water. All this and more is available in the Wyoming Fishing Guide, now available online at wgfd.wyo.gov.
The Wyoming Fishing Guide takes you through Wyoming on a drainage-by-drainage basis. The guide lists 247 of the most popular streams, lakes, reservoirs, and fishing locations in Wyoming. The guide is organized by Wyoming’s five drainage areas, within each is a table listing popular waters and the species of fish present in each. The table also contains information on the availability of camping, boat ramps, and restroom facilities.
The guide contains information about Wyoming’s stream access and trespass laws, and where to obtain fishing regulations and licenses. To aid in fish identification, it includes depictions of Wyoming’s game fish species.
It also lists addresses and phone numbers for obtaining maps as well as contact information for Game and Fish regional offices and the drainage each office serves.
The fishing guide does not contain regulations for each drainage and specific regulations that apply to different waters (consult the Wyoming Fishing Regulations). Fishing regulations are available at more than 300 license agents throughout the state, on the Game and Fish website, and at Game and Fish regional offices.
