Wheatland Reservoir #3
Renowned for producing both large trout and walleye, Wheatland #3 Reservoir boasts over 4,700 acres of boating and fishing. When full, it has a maximum depth of 50 feet and an average depth of 15 feet. It is best fished during the season, March and October, but can be good year-round with ice fishing in winter. With over 10 miles of shoreline, and easy access, anglers can fish from the bank, or use the public boat ramp to launch, powerboats, canoes, kayaks, pontoons, pleasure boats, and fishing boats of all types.
Wheatland #3 has developed into one of the most productive and popular fishing destinations in southeast Wyoming. It’s known for large trout, many of which are well over 20 inches in length. The current fisheries management consists of stocking 80,000 seven-inch rainbow trout and 7,500 brown trout annually. Tiger trout were stocked in 2017 and stocked again in 2020. Walleye are not stocked but can be found in the lake. Wheatland Reservoir #2 has a limited Walleye population and no public access. When water is delivered from #2 to #3 Walleye come with the water and have established a population in #3. The opportunity for anglers to catch large trout has made Wheatland #3 a popular destination fishery in southeast Wyoming.
