Idaho Fish Report

Emergency Regulations still in effect

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Emergency Regulations still in effect: From July 1 through Sept. 30, all size limits and daily/possession limits are lifted for all game fish, due to low water and expected deteriorating water conditions by mid-summer. ODFW encourages anglers to harvest what they can consume and not waste the resource. 

All water users should keep an eye out for harmful algae blooms at low reservoirs and check this article to learn how to be safe while fishing. Water conditions this past weekend resembled split peas soup, as a yellowish green cloudy tint. Folks should keep their dogs from drinking water and consider avoiding contact with the water themselves if conditions continue to look that way. 

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help you if you are planning a trip. Also, ODOT trip check is worth looking at.
