DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES
TO MASTER WYOMING WATERS?

Become a Master Angler

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is pleased to provide a program that recognizes the catch of trophy sized fish from our phenomenal Wyoming waters. There are three levels of acheivement; Master Angler, Trophy Angler and Ultimate Angler. 

  • MASTER ANGLER

    • Catch one fish of a qualifying length to become a Master Angler.
       
  • ULTIMATE ANGLER

    • Catch any 10 species of a qualifying length to become an Ultimate Angler.

RULES

• Open to all Wyoming anglers, Resident and Nonresident.
• Fish must be caught with legal methods and during open seasons in Wyoming.
• Entries must be for fish captured after June 1, 2019.
• Anglers are limited to one Master Angler entry per species per calendar year. Submissions for Trophy Angler and Ultimate Angler have no time limitations.
• Each entry must be accompanied by one side-view photograph, preferably with either the angler or another object (e.g. ruler) that can be used to validate length.
• Qualifying fish must meet or exceed the minimum length established for that species. Length is defined as the Total Length of the fish (nearest 1/2 inch); from the snout to the tip of the pinched tail.

QUALIFYING LENGTHS

How to measure a fish: take the total length of a fish in inches, as measured in a straight line along a flat surface, from the tip of the snout to the tip of the tail.
