The great thing about this site is you can look at both Colorado and Wyoming to see what kind of fish species each state has to offer. On the top, there is a tab "Fish Species" Click on that and there should be a list of all the fish species that inhabits Colorado. Then for Wyoming, top right corner there's a viewing tab, click on that and select Wyoming and repeat the steps mentioned above. click on the fish species you are interested in and it will tell you all the lakes or reservoirs that have that species.

Burbot are in Flaming gorge Wy. There is a catch and kill mandatory on them. There is a good population of them in the north end. You can ice fish around the rocky/ cliffs shore. I have done very well after dark from the buckboard marina north to around lost dog area. Glow twister tails tipped with a whole 4in. Sucker seems to get their attention pretty good. We did good in 15 to 25 fow.

There are Burbot (Ling) in Montana and Wyoming. None in Colorado that I know of. They are not much of a game fish except through the ice. Good eating.
