Ask Fish and Game: Radio Controlled Boats

Q. What's up with radio controlled toy boats that have fishing gear attached? Are they legal in Idaho?

A. Yes, they are legal. Idaho Fish and Game rules require that a fishing line or lines must be attended by and under the immediate surveillance of the person fishing. But they are not required to hold it. The boats may not be legal in waters closed to motors or boats. A valid Idaho fishing license is required; anglers should check the current rule book for any restrictions or special rules on the water they are fishing.
