June 1st Is Free Fishing Day In Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Both Wyoming residents and nonresidents may fish for free in the state on June 1.
The Wyoming Legislature authorized Free Fishing Day in 2003. Free Fishing Day applies to all waters in Wyoming except those in Yellowstone National Park and on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
All fishing regulations still apply, such as creel and size limits, gear restrictions, fishing hours and stream closures.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says Free Fishing Day is held in conjunction with National Fishing and Boating Week. It provides people an opportunity to get reacquainted with fishing and enjoy fishing opportunities in the state.
