Green River - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Green River region will host open house meetings to discuss fisheries management plans for Flaming Gorge Reservoir. In response to feedback received at previous open house meetings, fisheries managers from Wyoming and Utah have developed an aggressive management plan to improve the kokanee and trout fishery by reducing the number of small lake trout in the reservoir. Biologists will share management strategies and new regulation proposals during the meetings.

On Jan. 17, 2024, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission voted to open the Chapter 46 fishing regulation to empower fisheries biologists to develop regulation proposals specific to Flaming Gorge Reservoir to increase the harvest of small lake trout and decrease the creel limit on kokanee salmon. Biologists will also discuss potential new stocking strategies and netting to target small, shore-spawning lake trout. 
To learn more about the issues impacting the fishery at Flaming Gorge, a presentation is available online.
