If you think fishing with three or more rods increases your chances of landing that big one you're right, but it won't be a fish that bites, it'll be a fine.

An unidentified man who was pictured in Thursday's Wyoming Tribune Eagle with three poles in his kayak has Wyoming Game & Fish Department officials reminding anglers that it's illegal to fish with more than two lines in the water.

"Unlike most states, Wyoming doesn't charge you for that second rod, but you are limited during ice-free periods to fish with one or two rods," said Mark Fowden, Chief of Fisheries. "If you're caught fishing with more than two rods it's a $70 fine."

Fowden says the biggest violation they see is folks fishing without a license. He says fishing licenses can easily be purchased online.
