Fishing Regulations

The Flaming Gorge Reservoir is an interstate body of water that straddles Utah and Wyoming and has different regulations depending on where you are at on the Gorge. There is a reciprocal stamp ($10) available for fisherman that helps those who have a license in one state, enjoy fishing on the Gorge in the other state for one year without buying a whole new out-of-state license. The number of lines you can have in the water changes throughout the season and each state has some different regulations including how they deal with Aquatic Invasive Species, so information is provided on this page to help you through these challenges.

“Participants must have a valid fishing license and adhere to all the rules and regulations for the state in which they are fishing, including Utah & Wyoming Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) regulations and all U.S. Coast Guard, Utah State Parks and U.S. Forest Service regulations. As a reminder, the use or possession of Live Bait Fish is not allowed on Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Also, if using more than 2 lines (rods) through the ice, lines must be labeled with anglers’ name. If a person is cited for a fishing violation by a state officer his/her whole team will be disqualified. Unregistered fishermen in your party will jeopardize the validity of fish caught by registered fishermen. (2013-14 Burbot Bash Rules)”
