SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — Wildlife officials in Sheridan say some trout have been dying in local streams and rivers because of low water flows and hot weather.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is asking fishermen to take steps to try reduce harm to fish stressed by this summer's conditions. Catch-and-release anglers can help by fishing in the early morning when water is cooler and more oxygen is available to fish and by going to higher elevations, where stream flows are higher.

Fish should also be released back the water as soon as possible.
