Where to Fish Gus Lake

Gus Lake Gus Lake


How long have brookies been in here? This lake was presumed to be fishless. Marcuson felt that EB's from lakes in wyo wouldn't be able to move into gus in summer. Did they use a spring freshet? Wyoming game and fish netted this lake for us in 1995. Boy did they find fish in 2 overnight net sets! MFWP surveyed 08, 6 hr. Net set. Not much has changed since 95.
