Problem
Idaho’s small communities like Orofino and Riggins are hurting because of the closure of the steelhead fishing season. The fish are hurting too. Only by protecting the fish, will the future of these communities be secure.

This petition asks IDFG and the 5 conservation organizations involved in a pending lawsuit to compromise to both help the economies that depend on steelhead AND help protect wild steelhead for the future.


Solution
We request:

Idaho’s steelhead fishing season be reopened immediately.

WITH and only with:
Single Point, Barbless Hook Only
No Bait
And Wild Steelhead required to be kept in the water during handling.

These rules need to be enacted through the end of IDFG’s next Fisheries Management Plan (2019-2026) at which time the status of wild steelhead recovery can be addressed.
