Save $25: Report your hunt

Approximately 20 percent of hunters who bought a big game hunting tag in 2023 will be charged a $25 dollar fee because they didn’t report their hunt by Jan. 31. Hunters who report their hunt by Jan. 31 are eligible to win a special big game tag of their choice. Which would you rather be? Find ways to report.‌

Best bets for weekend fishing

Winter steelhead is a go, ice-fishing is … not so much.‌

  • Rivers along the coast are still high and muddy from recent storms. But they may be falling back in shape for the weekend.
  • The artic blast last weekend may have firmed up the ice in most places. But with warmer temperatures and rain on the way, conditions can deteriorate quickly. Please exercise extreme caution when venturing on to the ice.

Check out the zone reports for more information and options.‌
