A new fishing pier at Lower North Crow Reservoir will provide better access for anglers.

Laramie - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department installed a new fishing pier in Lower North Crow Reservoir at  the John and Annie Woodhouse Public Access Area west of Cheyenne. Recently, the City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities removed 14,000-cubic yards of sediment from the reservoir. Over the years, silt and sediment has migrated downstream and been trapped in Lower North Crow Reservoir, decreasing the water storage diversion capacity. The silt removal project will restore water storage diversion capacity for the city and assist the Wyoming Game and Fish Department by improving the aquatic habitat, reducing the sucker population and allowing for the installation of a fishing pier for people with disabilities. The Game and Fish department took advantage of the low water level to build the wheelchair-accessible fishing peir. Fish stocking will resume later this summer upon completion of the project.
