Winter is a time for some to hibernate in the warmth of their homes, sipping on hot drinks by the fire. But for others, it offers a unique opportunity to try their luck at landing the native and once rare burbot in the Kootenai River. By reporting tags, you can help Fish and Game better understand burbot catch rates, harvest rates, and survival rates, which helps improve the fishery. Selecting tags with a reward value of $100 may just make your winter an even more exciting adventure! If you see a tag while fishing, please report the tag number and location where you caught the fish to Fish and Game. Reporting can be done over the phone (1-866-258-0338), online or as part of the Angler Science Program creel packet.
