Fish stocking--Do you sell live fish and crayfish for stocking into private ponds and what are the rules and regulations on this? Thank You.

Answer: 

Idaho Fish and Game doesn't sell fish (or crayfish).  Our hatcheries raise fish to stock in public waters. 

We can issue a Private Pond permit to a landowner.  The landowner can then purchase their own fish to stock their pond.  Details are on our website at
