The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will provide fishing gear and worms and employees from several local agencies will be on hand to help mentor youth anglers. The entire event is free of charge.

That Saturday is also recognized as Free Fishing Day across the state of Wyoming, when anyone may fish without a fishing license or Conservation Stamp.

However all limits and other fishing regulations still apply. More details on Free Fishing Day are listed in the Wyoming fishing regulations booklet and on the Wyoming Game and Fish website. There are Kids Fishing Day events held across Wyoming in celebration of National Fishing and Boating Week.
