The Ramblings of a Fly Fisherman

Wyoming Supreme Court Hears North Platte River Appeal

This is an interesting case that I have been following. I have not fished any of the North Platte yet, but this area is considered a great location that I intend to visit in the near future. I am concerned about this case as it appears to be a situation where private landowners are attempting to cut off an area known for large trout even though the present agreement with Game and Fish allows it. I certainly want to keep this area open to the public. I would agree with stricter “catch and release” guidelines, but to prohibit public fishing all together... that just seems extreme. I know that I have been frustrated by the number of area closures associated with trout waters recently and will never support additional limits. This area in particular has been open for nearly 50 years.
