Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout Production - Dan Speas Fish Hatchery

Located in Production Building #3, in one of the large 36' production tanks. There are currently 63,000 Eagle Lake Rainbow trout in this tank. Feeding times are at 9:00, 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30 (MST).

The program has been in the state since 1962.
 
This spring spawning trout originated out of Eagle Lake, California. This stock has been a staple used by the Department to manage fisheries and generate quality recreational opportunities across the state for nearly 60 years.

Brood stock:
Wyoming Game and Fish Department maintains a captive broodstock of Eagle Lake rainbow trout at the Story Fish Hatchery, located in Story, Wyoming. A total of 3,000 adult brood fish produce approximately 2,700,000 eggs annually. Eggs produced meet Wyoming’s needs and surplus eggs are provided to other state and federal facilities.

Rearing:
Eagle Lake Rainbow trout account for approximately 30% of the fish raised in Game and Fish hatcheries each year. Eyed eggs are typically shipped out in April through June. As eggs develop, hatch and the fry swim-up, they are started on manufactured fish feed fed up to eight times a day. As the fish grow, the number of times fish are fed decreases. Depending on the water temperature and the feeding rate, Eagle Lake Rainbows can grow up to one inch per month.

Fish Distribution:
Eagle Lake rainbow trout are stocked throughout the state. Fish are typically reared to between 3 and 9 inches before they are stocked. On average, just over one million Eagle Lake Rainbow trout are stocked annually.

Kokanee Early Rearing - Dan Speas Fish Hatchery

Kokanee salmon are one of the most popular game fish in the state of Wyoming.  Anglers come from all over the nation to take advantage of the amazing kokanee fisheries that exist in the state.  The Wyoming Game and Fish Department currently stocks over 1.2 million kokanee each year in many lakes and reservoirs across the state.

Kokanee salmon are closely related to the ocean going sockeye salmon.  Unlike sockeye, kokanee don’t migrate to and from the ocean; instead spending most of their life in a lake or reservoir.  Upon reaching maturity, adult kokanee run up streams or find areas along the sandy, gravely shores of a lake or reservoir to spawn.  Unfortunately wild spawning does not support all of the recreational fisheries so we need to stock kokanee.

Until last fall, the Department relied on wild spawning operations or importations from other states to provide the eggs needed to stock Wyoming’s waters.  However, the Department recently developed a captive kokanee broodstock at the Tillett Rearing Station which should provide a steady supply of disease-free eggs.  The eggs are reared at several Department hatcheries before being stocked as fingerlings.

8 Species caught on Trail Cam

Remote cameras provide a non-invasive tool for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Large Carnivore Section to monitor wolf activity and pack composition without causing disturbance. Deploying cameras near wolf den and rendezvous sites often yields excellent data because the sites are the center of wolf pack activity in spring as summer as they cooperatively raise pups. In late summer 2019, Large Carnivore Section personnel stationed a camera at a wolf den after the pack had moved from the site assuming the pack would revisit the den during their subsequent travels. The camera captured interesting behavior from both adult wolves (collared) and pups (uncollared) when they revisited the den, and also recorded the presence and behavior of 7 additional wildlife species.

Hundreds of Pronghorn at Fence Crossing

More than 200 pronghorn crossing one of many fences on their migration. The clip illustrates how fences can be an obstacle for wildlife as they migrate. A large portion of the Medicine Bow Pronghorn Herd migrates north out of Shirley Basin into Bates Hole in the winter, but their progress is slowed by pasture fences and highway right-of-way fences along the way that are not a wildlife-friendly design. Hundreds of pronghorn are shown crossing at this location, along Highway 220 south of Casper, because it’s one of a few locations with a large enough gap to cross under that also has a similar gap on the other side of the road. Even this crossing location can become impassable in the winter if the snow is too deep, though. Collar data and footage from remote trail cameras help us identify sections of fence that would be most beneficial to convert to a wildlife friendly design.
