ASK GAME & FISH

Fish passage refers to the techniques and solutions that help fish navigate around man-made obstructions in Wyoming’s rivers and streams.  Restoring and maintaining an adequate passage is important since many of our fish species move long distances each season.
 

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has worked on many projects across the state with various partners to restore connectivity in our streams.  Examples of projects include installation of fish ladders and bypass channels at dams, fish screens in irrigation ditches, culvert improvements at road crossings, and doing an inventory of passage barriers.  Collectively, these efforts improve access to historical habitats, reduce fish loss, and prioritize future projects to benefit fish populations.
