Boysen crappie catch beats state record

By KVOW/KTAK News Director Leslie Stratmoen

BOYSEN RESERVOIR, Wyo. — State game official Rene Schell of the Lander field office gave us details this morning about the record-black crappie catch at Boysen Reservoir in Fremont County over the holidays. She said Troy Schnepper of Casper made the snag – a 2 pound, 7.4 ounce fish that was 15 3/8 inches long with a girth of 13 ½ inches. His fish beats the state record held for the past 16 years by Thermopolis angler Edward Hausauer by just a couple of ounces.

She said Schnepper was jigging in the Poison Creek area on New Year’s Eve when he caught the fish, which means he was using a special type of lure with a sinker that jerks up and down …..

She said the ice on the lake is certainly thick enough for ice fishing, about a foot thick in most places, except for the middle which could be thin because the lake is so deep and vast. She said the locals are checking out the ice shanty blog for the best report on up-to-date conditions for favorite fishin’ holes.

Law change gives non-custodial parent say regarding residency

By KVOW/KTAK News Director Leslie Stratmoen

RIVERTON, Wyo. — A new Wyoming state law governing child custody could make it easier for non-custodial parents to have a say in where the custodial parent lives. Riverton Attorney John Vincent said until just recently a custodial parent could move out of state even though the move might severe the relationship of the non-custodial parent because of the distance.

VINCENT explains …..

As for cases in which the custodial parent has already left the state, Vincent says this new law opens the door for the case to be re-opened.
