The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has a mission to provide quality fishing and hunting opportunities within the state, while also working to improve habitat and restore historic populations of native fish. They were established to prevent the dangers of over-harvesting wildlife.
There are a number of regulations to ensure fishing the Wyoming lakes and rivers continues to be a pleasure for visitors for years to come. An example of a regulation for fishing for trout and other fish is the creel and possession limit.
For trout in combination such as brown, rainbow, lake and golden, there is a limit for one day of six trout, with no more than one being in excess of 20 inches. For green sunfish, crappie, rock bass and some others, the limit is 50 for a day.
By going to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s website (see below) you can download a fishing regulation booklet, as well as find out when you can get a day of “free fishing” with no license requirement.
