Members of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department use nets and specialized electrical equipment to help catch different types of fish along the North Platte River last summer. Officials conducted a fish population estimate to see how many and what types of fish exist in this part of the river, and track any habitat changes over time.

Members of the Platte Valley Trout Unlimited Chapter and Wyoming Game and Fish (WGFD) met Thursday to discuss both river work and fish sampling within the southeast Wyoming region.

The evening's program at Saratoga Resort and Spa featured an update on river work along the Encampment River, and an assessment of the fisheries in the Upper Platte River Valley. Results from last year's electrofishing on the North Platte downstream from Pick Bridge were also shown and discussed in detail.
