Fish & Game: Go catch all the fish you want at Little Camas Res before it’s drained

The Idaho Department of Fish & Game today issued a “salvage order” for Little Camas Reservoir in Elmore County, lifting all bag, possession and size limits. That’s because the reservoir is headed for a draining by early summer for irrigation, and Fish & Game “would like the public to use as many of the fish as possible.” Fish may be taken, F&G announced, “by any method except firearms, explosives, chemicals or electric current.”

The order takes effect on Tuesday, May 7, and runs through Sept. 30. F&G cautioned anglers that regular limits remain in place elsewhere, including possession limits. So if someone caught 20 trout at Little Camas, which historically has been known for its trout fishery, and then moved elsewhere to do more fishing and brought the 20 fish along, they’d be in violation of the possession limit at the new fishing spot. Another thing to note: Fishing licenses still are required.
