Fishin' the Canals 

When the irrigation canals are drained this winter any, fish that have made the canals home over the summer will be left high and dry. Instead of letting the little guys slowly dehydrate, Idaho Fish and Game is encouraging the public to fish 'em out. In addition to a fishing license, anglers are reminded that most irrigation canals are on private land and therefore landowner permits must be secured. Legal salvaging methods include rod and reel, snagging, archery, dip net, seines and with bare hands. However, it is illegal to use toxic chemicals, explosives, firearms or electric current to catch fish. There are no size or possession limits on salvage fish but fish must be killed prior to transporting them from the collection site.

For more information, call the Nampa Fish and Game office at 465-8465.
