Sportfish Populations of Wyoming

Travis Neebling is the Reservoir Research Biologist with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, a role he has served in since 2009.  Prior to beginning with the Department, he earned his Master of Science degree from Iowa State University and his Bachelor of Science degree from Northland College.

Travis’ research focuses on native and non-native sportfish populations in Wyoming’s large natural lakes and reservoirs.  He evaluates new gear and techniques, monitors trends in populations, evaluates fish size and health, and evaluates stocking and harvest rates.  He also serves as the state’s technical specialist on hydroacoustics and technical specialist on mercury contamination in fish.  He will be describing his work in more detail and will be available to answer any questions you may have on Wyoming’s fisheries.

Come and hear more about this ongoing research on Friday, March 11, 2016, at 7 PM at the Oil & Gas Conservation Commission Building at 2211 King Blvd.  As always, the program is free and open to the public!!
