Anglers’ Guide 2023-2024 – Tag Use


Tags must be immediately and securely locked through the gills and mouth of retained salmon, and the month and day must immediately be clearly cut out and removed from the vinyl portion of the tag.

Any angler who “hooks” a salmon shall immediately affix and lock his or her own tag through the gills and mouth of the salmon and cut out and remove the month and day of capture, unless the salmon is released back into the water. This includes cases where the angler allows another angler to land the salmon (i.e., passing the rod).
