Is it legal to cast out (or tie to a branch/dock) a fishing line then go back to camp (or home) to let the line sit over night?

I think its called a trout line or something.

Answer

It is not legal in Idaho to let your line sit overnight.  Fishing lines must be attended at all times by the person who is fishing.
