Rainbow trout, brown trout, and bluegill are common species that can be found in many fishing locations across the state. These fish are known for their willingness to bite, providing kids with plenty of action and a sense of accomplishment.

When it comes to urban fishing locations, Wyoming has several options that are easily accessible for families. One popular spot is Sloans Lake in Cheyenne. This urban lake is regularly stocked with trout, offering a great chance for kids to reel in their first catch. In Casper, the Morad Park Pond is a designated fishing spot that provides a safe and kid-friendly environment for families to enjoy fishing together. Additionally, the Cody Kids Pond in Cody is a stocked pond specifically designed for young anglers, providing an ideal setting for kids to develop their fishing skills.

These urban fishing locations often feature amenities such as fishing docks, picnic areas, and restrooms, making them convenient and family-friendly. They are designed to create an enjoyable fishing experience for kids while allowing parents to relax and appreciate the natural beauty of Wyoming's urban areas.

Wyoming's commitment to promoting kids fishing ensures that young anglers have access to fishing opportunities that are safe, fun, and rewarding. From rainbow trout to bluegill, the variety of fish species available and the accessibility of urban fishing locations provide a perfect setting for kids to develop a love for fishing and a connection to nature. Engaging in fishing at a young age allows children to cultivate valuable skills, create lasting memories with their families, and foster a lifelong appreciation for the great outdoors.

Fishing and the great outdoors offers kids an alternative to many influences they encounter in their busy lives today. A single fishing trip could be the turning point in a young life, and we encourage you to invest the time. Ice fishing is a good way to introduce kids to fishing. The rewards are endless for so little effort.
