Flaming Gorge Reservoir, Wyoming
This contest is designed to encourage people to fish for, have fun catching and harvest small Lake Trout. Lake Trout are game fish and a valued component of the Flaming Gorge fishery. Currently there is an overabundance of Lake Trout less than 25”. Harvesting small Lake Trout will improve the trout and Kokanee fishing by reducing pup predation on these species, especially Kokanee. It will also improve the trophy fishery by increasing the number of adult Kokanee that are available to the remaining lake trout.
