New state fishing regulations are unveiled
New Wyoming fishing regulations take effect
beginning in January.
Wyoming anglers generally will be allowed to keep six trout of
any size in lakes and rivers around the state but will only be
allowed to keep three trout from a river or stream, with only one
of the three trout being over 16 inches. There will be exceptions
to the general limit in certain waters around the state.
The new regulation will allow anglers to keep up to 16 brook
trout of any size. The old regulation specified only six brook
trout could be over 8 inches.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department urges anglers to check the
new regulations and pick up a 2012 fishing license before heading
out on the first fishing trip of the new year.
