Is it possible to float the Portneuf River between McCammon and Inkom, and are there any public access sites along that stretch?
What is the status of Paddock Valley reservoir for the spring of 2014? I had heard that the farmers pulled most of the water out last season for irrigation. How much water is there in Paddock and what can we expect for fishing? Just trying to decide if Paddock is a destination for me this year.
It's no secret that Idaho has a lot of fishing opportunity. If you're planning your next fishing trip, this article may help you find a destination.
I have heard conflicting opinions among fishermen about keeping lots of perch at CJ Strike. Some say limits should be placed to prevent diminishing the fishery. Others say perch are overpopulating, and as many as possible should be removed to prevent stunted fish.
What is IDFG's view of the status of the perch populations at Strike, and what should anglers do to maximize the quality?
I would like to be able to free dive spearfish in lakes like Fernan and CDA, why is this illegal? It is more challenging than dock/ boat fishing.

The goop on steelhead fishing
A lot of questions about steelhead being stocked in the Boise River have come in to the Fish and Game offices. If you missed the news release yesterday, there is some exciting news!
About 200 steelhead will be stocked on Friday, November 22nd in the Boise River!
Get your steelhead tag and enjoy the opportunity. Not sure where to start? Try the Fish and Game steelhead page to get started.
A story came out this week about stocking steelhead in the Boise River.
We just opened the Hells Canyon trap on Monday. At the present time, we have no report of the number of fish trapped this week. If there are steelhead excess to the needs of our management program, then steelhead will be transported to the Boise River.
It will probably take us a couple of weeks to determine the status of the run and availability of fish for the Boise River. Check back with us in a couple of weeks for an update.
The fishing history of Lake Cascade is about as diverse as the fish in it. This article sums up what to expect now and how the fishery is being managed now.
