Annual walleye netting at Boysen Reservoir this fall by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department show that numbers of walleye and yellow perch are up.  Strong recruitment in 2011 for both walleye and yellow perch are boosting numbers of catchable sized fish in the Reservoir, and another strong 2014 year class of walleye should make for catchable sized fish in the next year or two. Juvenile yellow perch are also abundant which should lead to better fishing for yellow perch in the next couple of years as well.
