Attention anglers: Delays expected in "Tag, You're It" reward processsing, but please continue to report tags

Reported tags are crucial for fisheries research, and help make fishing better for Idaho anglers

Due to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, anglers who report reward tags as part of Fish and Game’s “Tag, You’re It” program should expect some delays in receiving their rewards.

Jeff Dillon, fisheries research manager at Idaho Fish and Game said, “Under the current conditions, we are not going to be able to process reward tags as quickly as we normally would.

“We want to take this opportunity to urge anglers to please continue to report tags, because they are a crucial component of our research, aimed at making fishing better for Idaho’s anglers. We also want to ensure them that while they can expect some delays, we will work to process reward tags as quickly as possible.”

Anglers who catch any tagged fish should report it at tag.idaho.gov, or report it by calling the telephone number listed on the front or back of the tag.
