Fishing Regs Change For Local Waters

Local anglers are being reminded that several major changes to the state’s fishing regulations are now in effect. Among them, a new statewide daily creel for lakes and reservoirs allows up to six trout of any size. The lake trout creel limit applies to streams as well, including the Snake River at the outlet of Jackson Lake Dam. Wyoming Game and Fish officials also point out that a couple Union Pass lakes north of Pinedale have been added to the special regulation waters to protect trophy brook trout populations. Rock Crib and Wagon Creek Lakes now have a creel limit of six brook trout per day or in possession.  Another change for most Snake River tributary streams in the Jackson area is a move to close these waters December 1 rather than the current November 1 closure date in order to be consistent with local big game winter range closures.  There are some exceptions to this, including Flat Creek, which will maintain a November 1 closure date.  All changes to the fishing regulations are listed in blue type in the new regulations booklet.
