Guide Logbook

Rule-making status: Permanent

Rule Making Reference# P2022-15
This revision to the fishing guide logbook rule will improve enforceability and compliance of the rule.

This revision will require trip location and date information at the beginning of the trip, will clarify when reports entered through the web reporting tool need to be submitted and remove reference to vessel so it’s clear that all guided fishing trips, whether on foot or on a vessel must be reported. This proposal will also close enforcement loopholes allowing officers to make contacts at any point in the guided trip, not just at the end of the day at the boat launch.
