The Wyoming Game and Fish have announced that Sheridan resident Joe Gilbert is the newest Ultimate Angler in the Sheridan Region. The program features three levels of challenge – Master, Trophy and Ultimate Angler.
According to the department, Master Anglers must catch at least one fish species of qualifying length, Trophy Anglers must catch at least five species and Ultimate Anglers must catch at least ten species. They document their achievements with photos.
Gilbert, who retired in 2016 after a 36-year Game and Fish career, is an avid angler and hunter. It took him three years to complete the Ultimate Angler program and his efforts took him throughout the state.
He is one of 44 anglers statewide to achieve Ultimate Angler status and just the fifth person in the Sheridan Region.
