Can I use my Jet Ski on Red Fish Lake. Is there a 2 cycle restriction? I have a 4 cycle.
Is the lower pack river from the Idaho Club down to the lake accessible for hunting and fishing? Can I use a canoe to fish the Pack River and then into the lake? Are there any EPA restrictions? My general concern is that if I buy a lot in the Idaho Club or surrounding lower pack river area, will my access to recreation activities be restricted. Thanks!
I have only caught catfish out of Park Center pond (Average ~2-3lbs) and near Brownlee Reservoir off of the shore (Average ~2-4lbs). I really want to catch some bigger cats this year. I have not had any luck on the Snake river at Swan Falls or Snake River near Homedale fishing by the boat launch. I have heard of people pulling in bigger cats (10+lbs) from Swan Falls... are they doing overnights there to do this? Peak hours when I have caught 6 cats in a night were from 10p-4a.
In the past I have fished with a small weight on the end of the line and baited hooks coming of the main line. This was a long time ago and I cannot find anything about it in the regulations. I was wondering if it is still legal and if so how many hooks can I have off 1 line.
I want to know the process of become a Vendor to sell fishing licenses in Idaho. We were thinking about opening a small fishing bait and tackle store this Summer. We have an undeveloped acre near Dierke's Lake in Kimberly. Residents must now drive into Twin Falls to get a fishing license and five of the six vendors are chain stores :( Kimberly is not even on the list of places to look for a vendor? I think it would be great to sell them local. They stocked over 2000 fish down the road last week!!! Thanks, Jo and kids
I am a new Idaho resident, about 6 months now. I am totally and permanently disabled as I have a degenerative spinal disease and I am unable to walk very far. In California, if a person was totally and permanently disabled with documentation from their doctor, we could use an ATV to get to hunting or fishing areas, even if areas were a non-motorized area.
They allowed this under Federal ADA mandatory rules for allowing access to recreational areas for the disabled.
I went skiing at Spring Valley this weekend and people were target shooting again near the reservoir. There were also many people ice fishing and walking and trying to enjoy the peace and solitude of this recreation area. We did not see a single bird or other animal during our ski which I attribute to the shooting disturbance. I feel it is inappropriate to have shooting in this area since this is such a popular area for outdoor enthusiasts. I certainly would hesitate to bring my children to play with the firing range so close by.
In the past four years we have witnessed people hunting for cow elk in all of unit 22 during the bull season. They have a 22-1 tag for cow elk. One year their was a group driving elk to the hunters. Scattering them making it harder for the law abiding bull hunters to work harder for an elk. We approached one such hunter and he insisted he is hunting in the right area. The area needs to be patrolled and tags checked. What should a person do?
