JEROME — During February and March, Idaho Fish and Game’s fisheries managers will seek public comment in shaping three fishing proposals: 2018 Chinook salmon seasons, upcoming statewide fishing seasons and rules through 2021 and Idaho’s long-term fisheries management plan.
Local meetings are scheduled for:
- Jerome — 1 to 8 p.m. Feb. 21, Magic Valley Regional Office, 324 S. 417 E.
- Hailey — 1 to 8 p.m. Feb. 22, Blaine County Community Campus, Queen of the Hills Room, 1050 Fox Acres Road
Comments from public feedback will help fisheries staff develop proposed changes, which will also go through another round of public review before the Idaho Fish and Game commission adopts new rules in November.
