Letter to steelhead anglers from F&G Director Virgil Moore

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission suspended the fall steelhead season effective midnight December 7, 2018.  The decision was made after careful thought in response to a threatened lawsuit over the federal government’s failure to process Idaho’s Endangered Species Act permit for the steelhead fishery. Steelhead fishing will remain closed in 2019 until further notice.
