Top Fishing Spots in Wyoming
Entrepreneur and executive Jeffery Scott Fraser divides his time between Alaska and Wyoming, overseeing operations at the historic Tsaina Lodge and serving as an investor in Job Pose. Outside of work, Jeffery S. Fraser enjoys a wide range of hobbies, such as fishing.
Thanks to its plentiful rivers, streams, and lakes, Wyoming is a great state for fishing. Anglers can find everything from crappie and bass to trout, but identifying the best fishing spots can be a challenge. Following are just a few of Wyoming’s best fishing areas.
Bighorn Lake: Located in Kane, Bighorn Lake covers 5,500 acres. Fishers can enjoy more than 50 miles of accessible shoreline or get out on the water in a boat. While the lake is perhaps best known as a bass fishing spot, it is also home to plenty of trout, catfish, and walleye.
Guernsey Reservoir: A popular spot for bass, crappie, and panfish, Guernsey Reservoir was created by the North Platte River dam in eastern Wyoming. It covers 2,400 acres and is known for having aggressive fish.
Flaming Gorge Reservoir: Teeming with bass, trout, and salmon, Flaming Gorge Reservoir is located near Green River in the southern part of Wyoming. Many record-setting catches have taken place here.
Boysen Reservoir: Home to the state record for black crappie, Boysen Reservoir is a great spot for trout, panfish, and crappie. The lake covers over 19,000 acres in central Wyoming and is located in Boysen State Park.
