News New Year brings new fishing regulations in Wyoming

Fish2DMax

Jerry A
Of interest to anglers and live baitfish dealers is the change that allows transport of live baitfish into the state from approved commercial hatcheries. The regulation includes new requirements specific to live baitfish importation.

Other changes of note reflect a change in state law allowing the use of corn for bait and the use of artificial lighting devices while fishing. The regulation will continue to prohibit the use of artificial light when spear gunning for game fish.

Of interest to bass anglers is the liberalization of the size limit regulation for bass on several southeastern Wyoming waters. Festo Lake and Hawk Springs Reservoir have had the bass size limit removed completely.On Grayrocks Reservoir, the 15- inch minimum size limit has been removed. Anglers can now keep three (3)bass but only one can be over 12 inches in length.
