ASK GAME & FISH

A public access area, or PAA, is an area the public can use for outdoor recreation. In Wyoming, PAAs are owned by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and are either permanent or long-term easements. Most PAAs across the state are for fishing access; however, many allow upland game bird hunting, waterfowl hunting, big game hunting, boating access and camping.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department website has an interactive map that shows the location of all the PAAs in the state. You can see more detailed information about each area and its specific regulations, restrictions and amenities by clicking on an area (purple dot on the map).
Public access areas are great places to enjoy Wyoming’s fantastic wildlife and fisheries resources.  Make it a goal to familiarize yourself with these great opportunities, and visit one of the more than 200 PAAs today. Enjoy the great outdoors, Wyoming!
