ASK GAME & FISH

Walk-in fishing areas are tracts of deeded land where the Wyoming Game and Fish Department leases fishing  access for the public. Anglers can use walk-in fishing areas for fishing only and must have a valid fishing license or an exemption δΈ€ like some youth. Walk-in fishing areas provide valuable access for anglers, particularly during the summer months. In 2020, walk-in fishing areas offered 4,005 lake acres and 87 stream miles for anglers.  All walk-in fishing areas have Game and Fish-provided signs marking the boundaries. Most areas are open year-round. 

Current fishing regulations are in effect for all walk-in fishing areas. For information on where to find walk-in fishing access and specific area rules, visit the Game and Fish website.
