Welcome to BFT, the best fishing forum out there!
To answer your question there are a bunch of lakes on the eastern side of Wyoming with warm water species, Sloans Lake, Lake Absaracca right IN Cheyenne have some crappie. Wheatland 1, Rock Lake, Festo Lake and Grey Rocks all right in Wheatland might have some. Also Hawk Springs and Glendo north and east of Cheyenne might have some too. Also just across the border in Nebraska Lake Oliver (?) is said to have some good warm water species in it... I found a really cool tool that you might try, I found a very cool website where you type in what kind of fish you are looking for and how far you would travel, and it will list and map all the lakes within that distance that has that species... Give her a try. http://www.takemefishing.org
Have a good one and again welcome to BFT! LBD
Surprised the crap out of us. We had been fishing a small cove/bay literally all day with small jigs... no crappies.
Then all of a sudden Tim lands that trophy (wyoming) crappie and he caught it on a worm on the bottom.
Something to consider - Grayrocks was extremely low at times during the past decade. Anybody who has fished it knows just how low I am talking. When the water gets low like that, it can destroy a population of crappie. Their fry have no chance - even against carp, much less walleyes, drum and catfish. I think we are pretty lucky that there are still crappie in there. It might take them a long time to rebound but this high water is probably helping. I used to fish Echo Reservoir in Utah, I'm sure many of you have passed it on the way to Salt Lake. It used to have a nice population of crappie - the lake got too low 2 years in a row and they were gone, literally.
As for Crappie fishing elsewhere.
Sloans Lake / Absaraka Lake (Cheyenne)
Hawk Springs Reservoir.
Yeah had been reading and posting some on Myfishfinder and IceShanty, there were a LOT of people from east and central Wyoming, been getting to be more on BFT now too!!! Good to see you are still here too... Do any ice fishing this year?
