Biologists use information from tagged fish for a wide range of information. Tagged fish can help track seasonal movements of fish, habitat use, growth, angler harvest rates, among other things. Using fish tags are also a relatively inexpensive way to learn more about our fisheries. Anglers are encouraged to submit the catch information for any tagged fish that they catch. In some cases a fish may be tagged with a reward tag, which might cover the expenses for your fishing trip!

If you catch a tagged fish, please report online by clicking the button below or download a form and mail to any Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office:
