If you are a fisherman participating in the angler science program on Lake Pend Oreille, thank you for investing time and energy into helping us. Information collected by anglers will help Idaho Fish and Game manage the trophy rainbow trout fishery.
The time periods for filling out fishing logbooks ended on Nov. 28, so make sure to turn in your completed logbook by Dec. 10 for your chance to win some great prizes! You can turn it in to any derby weigh station (click here for a list) or the Fish and Game Panhandle Regional office at 2885 West Kathleen Ave, Coeur d’Alene.
If you happen to be looking for yet another reason to continue chasing the world-class rainbow trout in Lake Pend Oreille, remember that Fish and Game is conducting a tagging study on rainbows in the lake.
If you’re fishing on Lake Pend Oreille, please keep your eye out for tags located in the backs of rainbow trout. Each tag has a unique number printed on it, as well as a phone number, URL and reward value (on select tags only).
Tags can carry a reward value of $25, $50, $100 or $200, so cross your fingers in the hopes of catching that big reward fish!
If you see a tag, please report the tag number and location of where you caught the fish to Fish and Game.
