Ask Fish and Game

Q. I caught a trout that had a jaw tag. What do you want me to do with it?

A. Fish and Game needs some information in an effort to improve the catchable rainbow trout we plant in some Idaho waters. If the tag has "$$ 10 $$" on it, you're and instant $10 winner. Otherwise, turning in the tag information places you in a drawing for $50. It is cheaper (and more fun) to reward anglers for turning in tags than to gather this information some other way. If you caught a trout with a tag, send your name, address, phone number, date and location fish was caught and the flattened tag (or just the number, if you want to keep the tag) to IDFG Fisheries Research, P.O. Box 428, Jerome, ID 83338.
