Wyoming lawmakers try to land guided fishing regulations…again

Some days out on the water, the drift boats and rafts are so dense, Wind River Troutfitter owner Ron Hansen feels like everybody’s on top of each other.  The phenomenon, he said, is most prevalent on the Bighorn River through Thermopolis and on the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River near Alcova.

After eight failed attempts — in 1991, ‘93, 2005, ‘14, ‘18, ‘19, ‘20, and ‘23 — the Wyoming Legislature is again examining regulations for the commercial fishing industry akin to those that govern trophy and big game hunting, regulated by the Wyoming Board of Outfitters and Professional Guides.
