IDAHO FALLS – Biologists with the Upper Snake Region of the Idaho Department of Fish & Game (IDFG) have arranged for a series of meets to discuss ideas for future fishing & hunting seasons with interested sportsmen. These meetings are just the first step in the process of creating regulations that will be proposed to the Idaho Fish & Game Commission at a later date. According to Regional Fish Manager Dan Garren, “We’re scoping ideas to provide more angling opportunity where biologically feasible”.
