BOISE -- More than 250 steelhead will be stocked into the Boise River on Thursday, November 1 in the first of two planned stocking efforts over the next few weeks.

The fish are coming from the Oxbow Hatchery on the Snake River and range in size from six to 12 pounds.

Besides a fishing license, anglers hoping to tangle with one of the hachery fish need a $12.75 steelhead permit, good for 20 fish.

Though required in other steelhead waters, barbless hooks are not required for Boise River steelhead angling.

For more information regarding the Boise River steelhead release, contact the Fish and Game Nampa office at 465-8465 or check the department s website.
