The Game and Fish Department will be stocking fish in the Bighorn Mountains with a helicopter in early August.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be using a helicopter to stock over 20 lakes in the Cloud Peak Wilderness on the east slope of the Bighorn Mountains this summer. Game and Fish Information Specialist Warren Mischke says that this is done every couple of years since many wilderness lakes lack the physical habitat needed for trout reproduction.

Mischke explains that there will be a minor change to some of the species being stocked this year.

Mischke said that weather permitting, they will be stocking the lakes via helicopter Tuesday, August 3rd.
