**** Good news for fishermen and women. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is ramping up its fish stocking throughout the state. Officials state this year’s stocking plans are similar to 2020 when Game and Fish stocked 7.1 million fish in Wyoming waters. About two-thirds of those fish were trout and kokanee (Coke-an-knee) salmon raised in Wyoming’s 10 fish hatcheries and rearing stations. The rest are cool and warm-water fish brought in from out of state.
**** Governor Mark Gordon has signed off on House Bill 52 that is designed to put Wyoming-raised meat on school lunch menus. House Bill 52 will direct the Wyoming Department of Education to make up to $25,000 available on an annual basis for school districts to cover the cost of processing donated Wyoming poultry, lamb, pork, beef, and bison for school meals.
**** On Monday, the Wyoming Department of Health reported 79 new COVID-19 cases in the state since last Friday’s report. Seventeen of those new cases were in Sweetwater County.
