Memorial Day Weekend Means AIS Inspections

The Memorial Day Weekend is the first busy boating weekend of the year and Wyoming Game and fish Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) inspectors will have inspection crews at Wyoming’s most popular waters. This is the third year for Wyoming’s AIS inspection program.

Game and Fish spokesman Al Langston says there are a number of things boaters can do to make sure the inspection process goes smoothly to allow boaters to launch with minimal delays. He says the self-check form on the game and fish website guides boaters through many of the same questions inspectors will ask.

The self-check asks if boaters have used their watercraft in any infested waters within the last 30 days, and if so, has the watercraft been decontaminated. If a boat has been in an infested water in the last 30 days, it must be inspected and possibly decontaminated before launching in Wyoming. To schedule an inspection, call 1-877-WGFD-AIS.

The self-check also guides boaters through the Drain, Clean and Dry procedure. Leave any wet compartments open to dry. Clean all plants, mud, and debris from gear and equipment. Never move a plant or animal from one location to another.  Dry everything thoroughly.
