JEROME, Idaho – The Idaho public has the chance to comment on proposed fishing rules for 2019 and a draft of a statewide Fisheries Management Plan. 

Idaho’s fishing seasons and rules are approved by the Idaho Fish and Game Commission every three years, according to the department, and the commission is scheduled to set new rules in November.

Open houses are planned in a number of locations throughout the state, including two in the Magic Valley region. Those who can’t make it to the planned open houses can still submit their comments via email or online.
