Cheyenne - April’s episode of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s “Get Outside!” podcast explores fish management in the Wind River Mountain Range in northwest Wyoming. Paul Gerrity, Lander Region fisheries biologist, explains how Game and Fish determines which of the hundreds of lakes in the Wind River Range are best for stocking, why some lakes don’t have any fish and how fish are transported to remote areas. He also shares what anglers can expect during a trip into the mountains, some tips for success and how to find good fishing spots.
