Trout Early Catch and Release Season Now Open

Early catch-and-release season for trout and salmon opened last Saturday, Jan. 1 and will run until May 6.

Anglers can now catch and release fish in most inland waters for trout and salmon. All license and regulations apply so check the 2021-2022 trout regulations.

Fish are very fragile in cold-air temperatures (particularly their eyes and gills), so they should not be exposed to the elements for long periods of time. Release them gently as soon as possible.   By releasing your fish responsibly, you are providing other anglers the opportunity to catch the same fish.

As a reminder, no ice is safe ice. Don’t walk on thin ice. Check with local fishing clubs or bait shops for up-to-date ice conditions.
