If you're one of those people that always seem to complain that there isn't anything to do in Wyoming, you're not trying hard enough. Really if you were to walk out your door and take a look around, you could find something immediately.

Luke Bryan's song 'Huntin, Fishin & Lovin Every Day' could've been written about Wyoming. There's a reason why the state of Wyoming is known worldwide for fishing...the opportunities to get out and go are endless.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department along with many fishing groups like the North Platte Walleyes Unlimited, Trout Unlimited and Wyoming Fly Casters work year round to ensure that we have great options for fishing, and do a heck of a job of keeping our options open.

I know that we get caught up in our work and complain that we don't have time, but after just one day on the water, you remember why you love living in Wyoming.

Hopping in your vehicle and driving a short distance, you can be fishing in just a few minutes. Whether it's on the river, pond or one of the reservoirs, fishing is an easy option to cure being bored.

We know trout is a popular species of fish people catch here, but Walleye is a close 2nd.

Even though the summer is winding down, there are still chances to get out and enjoy the WYO Hunters and Fisherman Walleye league for the next couple weeks.

The league is on Wednesday nights from 5-9 and rotates between Alcova & Pathfinder. The league gives you a chance to get on the water in the late afternoon/ evening and wind your day down on the water.

I jumped on the league director, Jay Fountain's boat and was able to explore Alcova for the first time. Even though the bite was slow, this statement kept popping in my head.

The worst day fishing is better than the best day at work.

It's true, even though I didn't catch anything, getting out on the water and seeing the beauty of Wyoming was worth every minute.
