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
