FWP News: Paddlefish count at 557 heading into weekend
By angelamontana

Posted: June 7, 2024

Harvest days are limited to every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturdays (in all yellow tag areas). Catch and release days are every Sunday, Monday, and Thursdays (only allowed at Intake Fishing Access Site – all other yellow tag areas are closed on catch and release days).

Mandatory harvest reporting is required within 48 hours of harvest (see fishing regulations for more details).
Free paddlefish cleaning services are provided at Intake Fishing Access Site on harvest days through at least June 15.
Please submit paddlefish jaw sections at self-reporting boxes (Sidney Bridge, Powder Confluence, and Tongue Confluence) to be used for aging fish.

Other important reminders: Any fish other than a paddlefish caught while paddlefish snagging must be released immediately. Handle all sturgeon with extra care; don’t use a gaff, keep fish in the water, and release immediately because it could be an endangered pallid sturgeon.
