Magic Valley Angler Hooks a Grand Fish
BOISE, Idaho (KTVB) -- A Magic Valley angler hooked a thousand bucks on one of his recent fishing trips.
Brian Gailey of Wendell won a jaw-tagged trout drawing sponsored by Idaho Power. Gailey and his pastor were doing some fishing downstream from Owsley Bridge near Hagerman. He says the $1,000 prize will help pay for a steelhead fishing trip on the Salmon River.
Each year, Idaho Power stocks trout in the Mid-Snake River at locations from C.J. Strike Reservoir east to Centennial Park near Twin Falls. Some of the fish released previously have jaw tags that can earn anglers a chance at $1,000 by calling this number: 1-800-388-6011.
