If you’re an avid fisherman, winter is an exciting time to try your luck at landing the native and once rare burbot in the Kootenai River. By reporting the tags on these fish, you can help Fish and Game better understand burbot catch rates, harvest rates, and survival rates, which helps improve the overall health of the fishery. Reporting can be done over the phone (1-866-258-0338), online or as part of the Angler Science Program creel packet. And with a reward value of $100 per tag, this winter may just be your lucky year!
