Wyoming Game and Fish has loosened some of its ice fishing regulations on over 20 bodies of water in the state.

Under the special provision, ice anglers can fish with up to six lines instead of the normal maximum of two at certain Wyoming lakes and reservoirs. Wyoming Game and Fish public information officer Al Langston says some regulations still apply, however.

“We have 23 waters where a fisherman, when fishing through the ice, can use up to six poles or tip-ups,” Langston said. “There’s a few regulations that go along with that – they have to have their name on all of their lines, and they have to check all of their lines.”

Four bodies of water in Natrona County are covered under the special provision. The 23 provision-covered waters include:

  • Alcova Reservoir in Natrona County
