Chinook Salmon Fisheries Meeting, New Fish and Game office Nampa

Hello All, there are a few updates I wanted to provide. Firstly, I wanted to direct your attention to some really cool habitat restoration videos that our agency recently put together highlighting some great partnerships and work being done across the state to enhance fish habitat. The first two installments of those can be found at the links below and a third installment is pending.  Look for the third installment on our website soon.

Part 2: River Restoration Series: Engineering, heavy equipment renew habitat for Idaho’s fish


Also, I’ve attached a news release outlining some upcoming public meetings relating to Chinook Salmon fisheries on the South Fork Salmon River. For those in the Treasure Valley that are interested, there will be a public meeting at the new IDFG Southwest Regional office (15950 N Gate Blvd, Nampa) on Tuesday, February 25th at 5:30 PM. This will not only be a great opportunity to hear about Chinook fishing on the SF Salmon, but also get updates on many of the other important fisheries in the region including Cascade, CJ Strike, and the Boise River. It will also be a great opportunity for you to meet and interact with your regional fisheries staff.


I enjoyed meeting and chatting with many of you at the recent Western Idaho Fly Expo. It’s always great to chat in-person.


Finally, many of you might recall that in my last email I mentioned pending updates on our 2019 field work. All that data is currently being compiled and summarized and I look forward to sharing more of that with you in the coming months.
