Three public meetings, one in Preston, are going to be held by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to seek public input on proposed rule changes impacting fisheries and angling opportunities on a regional and statewide level.
The first of the meetings will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the Larsen-Sant Library, 109 S. 100 E., Preston. It will begin at 6:30 p.m., as will the other two. The second meeting will be in Soda Springs at the Senior Center, 60 So. Main, on Sept. 19. The last meeting will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Fish and Game Office in Pocatello, 1345 Barton Road.
Among changes proposed by IDFG are:
• Treasureton Reservoir – Remove size and daily bag limit on bass;
• Bear River Tributaries – Expand no-harvest rule for cutthroat trout to include all Bear River Tributaries.
Other changes include:
• Approve fish rules and the rules booklet for a three-year period, which would add one year to the current cycle of changes;
• Set Free Fishing Day for three years so dates may be published in the rules booklet.
