Fisheries managers from Wyoming Game and Fish’s Green River region held open houses in October and November to discuss the status of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir fishery and the challenges it is facing

Casper, WY – According to the state officials, anglers who were unable to attend the open houses in person can view the presentation online.

Everyone who attended the open house meetings or viewed the presentation online is encouraged to complete a survey after considering the presentation’s content.

Survey responses will help inform future management actions by the Department.
The open houses were well attended, with over 100 anglers joining fishery managers to learn about the fishery and offer their thoughts and concerns.

Many anglers shared the same concerns as the fisheries managers.

Anglers in attendance expressed concerns that they have not been as successful catching kokanee and trout in recent years, and they want to know what additional management actions will be proposed beyond those mentioned in the presentation. 
Angler harvest has successfully reduced the population of burbot in the reservoir.
