Game and Fish Stock Fish Using Helicopter

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently teamed up to stock several bodies of water in the Bighorn National Forest with fish. Game and Fish Sheridan Region Public Information Specialist Tina Schmidt explains that due to the areas secluded nature, they stocked the fish using a helicopter.

Personnel from the Tensleep, Clark’s Fork, Wigwam, and Daniel hatcheries were brought in to help stock the fish. Schmidt said they used to stock these waters by packing in the fish via horseback but it was very inefficient.
