Last Load of Steelhead on the Way to Boise

The last shipment of steelhead of the year will be placed in the Boise River Thursday.

Idaho Fish and Game crews will release 333 fish at access points from Glenwood Bridge upstream to Barber Park. Fish and Game has already brought about 1,000 steelhead to the Boise this fall from Idaho Power Company's Oxbow hatchery, operated by the department.
