Public comments sought on potential fishing rule changes

By Ed Mitchell, IDFG

   The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is gathering public comments on proposed fishing rule changes as part of setting 2011-2012 fishing seasons and rules.

   Fish and Game sent out surveys to a random sample of Idaho residents. Anyone who got a survey letter is urged to complete the survey and send it back.

   Anyone who didn't get a letter but would like to comment may do so on the Fish and Game Web site at:

   The proposed changes are listed by region on the Idaho Fish and Game Web site list above. Many of the rule changes are being proposed to simplify current fishing rules and increase fishing opportunity for Idaho's anglers.

   The deadline to comment is Sept. 30.
