Sleeping Indian Pond on hatchery grounds is very popular for public fishing enjoyment. The 1/2-acre pond has a disability accessible observation/fishing deck that is available to anglers daily. The pond is an excellent place for children and first-time anglers, whether it be fly fishing or just a worm. Non-resident children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult with a license. There is a one fish limit per license. Wyoming fishing regulations apply. Licenses are not available on-site.
WILDLIFE and BIRDING
Be sure to bring your binoculars and camera to test your knowledge of local species. Depending on the season you may see elk, bison, coyotes, moose, bald eagles, trumpeter swans, osprey or sandhill cranes because the hatchery is uniquely located on the Fish & Wildlife Service's National Elk Refuge.
