Team Kings of Ling hold up one of the large burbot they caught at the 2019 Ding the Ling Ice Fishing Derby. 

The derby was fun and a bright spot on the very cold weekend! More than 100 teams braved the cold to try their luck catching burbot (a.k.a. ling) through the ice. The derby officially ended Sunday, February 10 after the check-in station officially closed at 10:00 AM. Thanks to everyone who made this derby possible and for all of the sponsors! The 2019 Ding the Ling Ice Fishing Derby was held February 8-10. ​The event was a success thanks to the La Barge Activities Committee. The nights were very cold with 20 below zero without the windchill! Green River Fisheries Biologist Troy Laughlin said things went very smooth and I appreciate your hard work.  Overall we had 142 participants and 479 burbot removed.  Not too bad considering this was only the 3rd year of the derby. 

The 2019 Ding the Ling Ice Fishing Derby was held February 8,9 and 10 on Fontenelle Reservoir. Please click here to review the poster for more details.

BLM seeks public input on proposal to improve mule deer habitat in Lincoln County

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office, in cooperation with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD), invites the public to provide input on a proposal to improve the quantity and quality of mule deer habitat.  The plan calls for phased vegetation treatments on BLM lands within the southern portion of the Wyoming Range mule deer herd unit. The BLM is committed to supporting healthy habitat on public lands through shared conservation stewardship. The proposal includes vegetation treatments for three main habitat types: Aspen forest, mixed mountain shrub and sagebrush. This includes additional invasive plant species control. The BLM is identifying issues for consideration in the environmental analysis and potential alternatives to the proposed action.

Several public meetings are scheduled during the 30-day scoping period, which will close on April 26, 2019. This will ensure that submitted input is considered during the NEPA process of the analysis and that all participants will be added to the mailing list to be notified of the availability of the environmental analysis. Public meetings are scheduled to be held at the Kemmerer Field Office (430 North Highway 189, Kemmerer, WY), on March 25, 6-8 p.m. and at the Cokeville Town Hall (110 Pine Street, Cokeville, WY), on March 26, 6-8 p.m.

Comments can be submitted by email to, with the subject line “Southern Wyoming Range Mule Deer Habitat EA;” by mail to BLM Kemmerer Field Office Attn: Phillip Lockwood, BLM Project Lead, 430 N. Highway 189, Kemmerer, WY 83101; or by fax to (307) 828-4539. While you may request that your personal identifying information (name, address, phone number or email) be withheld from public review, the BLM cannot guarantee it. For additional project- specific information, please contact Phil Lockwood at (307) 828-4549.
