When I bring home trout I tend to fillet them leaving some waste. Can I use the head or any other part as catfish bait?

I know in some states, using any part of a game fish as bait is illegal. I also know that trout must be killed when removed from the water where they were harvested. I just hate wasting the head and tails of trout carcasses if I could be using them to catch catfish. Thank you.


at Hayden lake there is a runoff what are the rules for getting the fish there

during the summers i have seen lots of fish get trapped in the fields and runoff is there any rules of the number of fish you can keep even if they do have limits in the main lake, just wondering cause most of the fish die in the field behind the dike road there. i also heard you can go into there and net the fish, spear them, even snag them. i see lots of catfish, bass (large and small mouth), perch, trout mainly rainbows and some cutthroats, pike, crappies,
