With steelhead numbers finally reaching 100,000, are there any plans for stocking in the Boise river? If so when will they start and how many drops are planned?

Answer

Boise River steelhead plant specifics are still up in the air based on reduced returns to  the Hells Canyon trap. Our best estimate is that only 300 will be transferred this year beginning about Nov 1. Press releases will be made available once specifics become more concrete.
