In Wyoming, a resident must purchase a fishing license to legally fish after she turns 14 years old. The state defines a resident as someone who has been living in the state for at least one year and not claiming another state as her residence.
Creel limits exist for certain species of fish in Wyoming, with anglers allowed to possess no more than a specific number for each type. For example, a person can keep as many as 25 whitefish per day but no more.
An angler can fish with no more than two lines during the open water season but can use as many as six tip-ups once ice fishing season commences.
It is unlawful in Wyoming to snag fish, or take them with the use of a crossbow or bow and arrow. Fishing with the use of artificial lights is illegal as well.
Rules for Bait
The only part of fish such as salmon, cisco, trout, grayling and whitefish an angler can use as bait is eggs. The rules allow any portion of a fish termed as a nongame fish legal as bait.
