Don’t Forget: Keep Them Wet! FWP Highlights Catch and Release Fishing Techniques

Montana FWP - Mon, 05/23/2016 - 17:47
With general stream fishing season underway on May 21, anglers are reminded to practice proper catch and release techniques for released fish. Anglers can reduce stress on fish by keeping the fish wet while landing and releasing it. The species of fish, water temperature, and angler behavior affect the success of catch-and release fishing. Trout species are most susceptible to angling mortality. Warm water stresses fish more than cold water. How an angler fishes, choice of gear, and how the angler handles the fish affect survival of released fish.
