No Fishing for Non-Residents in Wyoming Until May 8

No Fishing for Non-Residents in Wyoming Until May 8

CHEYENNE– The sale of non-resident daily and five-day fishing licenses were suspended a few weeks ago, and that suspension will be extended through May 8.

The suspension of sale is being done to align with Governor Mark Gordon’s directive to have non-resident visitors self quarantine for 14 days upon entering the state through May 8.

Brian Nesvik, Wyoming Game and Fish Director, said the suspension of the sale of these licenses is intended to protect the health of Wyoming residents. With non-residents coming into the state, they present the risk of bringing the COVID-19 Coronavirus with them.
