The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has announced new regulations to help prevent aquatic invasive species from entering the state on watercraft.  The new regulations require that any watercraft transported into Wyoming from March 1st through November 30th must undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching in any water of the state.  Additionally, any watercraft that has been in a water infested with zebra or quagga mussels within the past 30 days is required to undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching year-round. Chris Wight, Game and Fish AIS crew leader for the Jackson Region says in northwestern Wyoming, there will be permanent inspection stations at the Port of Entry in Alpine near the junction of US-89 and US-26 and at the rest area in Thayne along US-89. Wright adds that there will also be check stations operating on a rotating basis at the Sleeping Indian Turnout on US-89 just north of Jackson in Grand Teton National Park and on Skyline Drive in Pinedale.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
