The October issue of Idaho Fish and Game News is now available.
This issue covers the remarkable progress of sockeye salmon captive breeding program. More sockeye returned to the Sawtooth Valley this year than in 50 years. This year for the first time in decades, some returning sockeye were released from fish traps to swim on their own to Redfish Lake, where they will spawn naturally in the coming weeks.
Fish and Game News will be available at license vendors and Fish and Game offices statewide. It is also available online at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov.
Future issues will cover subjects of interest to hunters and anglers and information that they can use to plan fall hunts and weekend fishing trips.
The new Fish and Game News is smaller but will be 1 every month. It is still provided free of charge to the public.
