Angler comments have been collected at a series of meeting held statewide, but anglers can still provide their comments through the internet through March 29. To comment online, go to: https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/webform/public-comment-opportunity-fishing-seasons-and-rules-2016-2018.
Every three years, managers look at the current rules booklet closely and consider updates for future seasons. While the current seasons and rules booklet is valid through 2015, now is the time managers are considering suggestions for the next booklet, which will provide seasons and rules for the following three years.
Fisheries managers stress that when anglers offer ideas about how fishing can be improved, those ideas are considered carefully. Slot limits on the Boise River, catch-and-release rules on Silver Creek and special rules on the Selway River as just a few examples of how public input has influenced management decisions.
