Press Release

Little Camas Reservoir is open to salvage fishing

Order will likely remain until Dec. 31

Idaho Fish and Game on Thursday, Sept. 20 opened Little Camas Reservoir in Elmore County to salvage fishing because of low water conditions.

Anglers participating in the salvage must have a valid Idaho fishing license. The salvage order removes the bag limit, possession, and size limits, and anglers can use any method of removing the fish, except for the use of firearms, explosives, chemicals or electric current.

“There is a high likelihood of the remaining fish dying as water conditions deteriorate,” said Kelton Hatch, Magic Valley Regional Communications Manager. “We wanted to get ahead of fish dying and allow our anglers the opportunity to remove the fish.” 

The salvage will remain in effect until December 31, or be removed sooner if conditions improve. For more information, call the Magic Valley Regional Office at (208) 324-4359.
