Public Access / Public Access Areas


Public Access Areas (PAA's) are permanent or long term easements or Wyoming Game and Fish Commission owned land, managed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department for allowing public access for recreational purposes. Most PAAs allow access for fishing and some PAAs allow access for hunting. PAAs will have signs with maps identifying the rules and regulations for each specific PAA in the parking areas.

Please review the general regulations for PAAs, which are set by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission, as well as rules governing each unique area.

For site specific information and rules, please select a PAA from the drop down menu or on the interactive map below.
