An examination of the trout in the North Fork Shoshone/Buffalo Bill Reservoir fishery is the focus of a presentation by Wyoming Game and Fish Department Biologist Jason Burckhardt at Buffalo Bill State Park, July 5, at Shreve Lodge beginning at 6 p.m.

Since 2020, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has tagged nearly 7, 000 Rainbow and Cutthroat tout in the fishery. Those efforts are to determine the seasonal distribution of those trout, generate estimates of angler catch and harvest, and identify shortcomings of the current fishing regulations with an emphasis on the effectiveness of the seasonal closure.

Burkhardt’s presentation will present some of the preliminary results from this study. This presentation should prove interesting to not only anglers in the area, but those hoping to learn about area fish in general.
