Entrants must have a valid 2006 Wyoming fishing license and conservation stamp in their possession during the derby. Only fish freshly caught through the ice in Fremont Lake and meeting the size limitations are eligible for prizes. All fish entered must be weighed in and scored at Lakeside Lodge. All Wyoming fishing regulations and creel limits applicable to Fremont Lake will apply. Game & Fish officials will be on hand checking entrants to make sure they are in compliance with the regulations. Live bait is not allowed.
Note that automobiles, trucks and pets are prohibited on the ice unless specifically authorized by Derby officials. Fremont Lake is Pinedale’s domestic water supply, so special regulations are in effect for the lake and entire watershed.
