Sheridan: Ice fishing opportunities for trout and other popular game fish abound in Northeast Wyoming. Although most of the ice on these waters is not yet safe to fish through, good ice is expected to form soon.
Muddy Guard Reservoir #1 south of Buffalo is likely to produce some nice trout this winter. At Muddy Guard, all trout less than 20 inches must be immediately released. The possession limit is one trout. No bait is allowed, artificial flies or lures only.
