Win Prizes and Contribute to Burbot Research through the Kootenai River Angler Science Program


Nov 21, 2023

Winter is a time for some to relax at home and enjoy the warmth, while others see it as an opportunity to test their skills and catch the elusive burbot in the Kootenai River. By reporting tags, Fish and Game can better understand burbot catch rates, harvest rates, and survival rates, which helps improve the fishery. Select tags carry a reward value of $100, so this winter may be your lucky year! If you see a tag, please report the tag number and location of 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.
