New Wyo. Fishing Rules In Effect This Year
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Anglers might want to make sure they are aware of changes to Wyoming fishing limits this year.
The long-time restriction of only keeping one trout over 20 inches on lakes and reservoirs has been dropped. Anglers can now keep six fish over 20 inches.
Anglers on streams and rivers now have the limit of three fish per day and only one can exceed 16 inches. A few drainages in western Wyoming also have the stipulation that no more than one of those fish can be a cutthroat over 12 inches.
Brook trout now have a simple 16 fish daily limit with no size restrictions although there are some exceptions.
And whitefish limits will be reduced to six per day.
There are also changes involving live baitfish or minnows.
