If i catch a state record largemouth bass in spawning season (when the keeping season is closed) what do i do and when is the first day that you can keep L.M.B.
live in southeastern idaho and was wondering if there are any bull frogs in the region?
On section 03 the catch was great at 8 hours but low number of anglers interviewed and hours fished. On 05 and 07 the catch is great but horrible for keepers. - Seth Crevison, Clearwater Region Fisheries Technician

My boyfriend recently became obsessed with wilderness survival and wants to plan a family trip, to live off the land for a week or so. Are there rules and regulations regarding trapping or hunting (small scale) and living off the land during this trip?
Can you fish along the bank of the entire river out only in certain spots?
I was recently told that mussels were good bait for trout and steelhead. While discussing this with a fishing buddy, He said it was illegal to harvest mussels and therefore illegal to use them as bait. Can you please clarify this for me?
