just wondering why my question has never been answered or commented on


I have asked on two occasions if Brook Trout in the dredge ponds in Bear Valley can be harvested. I also contacted IFG Nampa office and was told a biologist would contact me with this information. That was in August. Nothing yet.


First, I apologize for our agency not answering your questions in a timely fashion.  That's poor customer service and I'm truly sorry.  We are working to do a better job and I guarantee we'll do better in the future.


Now for the good news - you can harvest brook trout from any water in the Bear Valley drainage including any dredge pond, beaver pond, or Bear Valley Creek.  The daily limit is 25 brook trout.
