IDFG will consider closing steelhead fishing season

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission could decide at its meeting tomorrow in Coeur d’Alene to shut down the steelhead fishing season on Dec. 7 and not open a spring season.

The move to close fishing would be made in response to the threat of a lawsuit issued by fishing and conservation groups who believe this year’s return of protected wild steelhead is so low, that fishing should be curtailed to guard against any incidental mortality.
