F&G Online Magazine Begins with Fishing Edition

Everyone with an interest in life in the Idaho outdoors and access to a computer is invited to cruise the pages of Fish and Game’s new online magazine.
The Internet address for the first edition is http://www2.state.id.us/fishgame/incredid/May2002/ or it can be found in the What’s News section on the main Fish and Game website under New Additions. The publication is called Incredible Idaho, the same name as the department’s television show, which is no longer produced.

Magazine editor Jack Trueblood said in his introductory editorial “We hope we have recaptured some of the magic of the discontinued hard-copy Idaho Wildlife magazine. An electronic magazine is a new medium for all of us, and it will probably evolve over several issues until we establish an identity, so bear with us. Along the way we will try to present solid information about Idaho’s great wildlife resources and recreation opportunities.

“This is the fishing issue so we’ve tried to provide a summary of what last year’s drought did to some of the favorite fishing waters across southern Idaho, and a prediction of what to expect as the season opens in each region. We’ve also included a chapter of law enforcement stories for you “true crime” fans, news about the volunteer/reservist program, some history, and a few recipes along with lots of other information.

“One of the special things in this issue is an essay on wetlands by Chris Martin, a student at Kuna High School. Chris sent this to the Fish and Game website, giving us the idea of publishing a student essay each issue. If you are a high school student and would like to be in the running for this, send your essay to “Student Essay” at [email protected]. We’ll try to publish one in each issue. There is no length limit but the topic must be conservation or biology-related and not controversial; we don’t want to debate the pros and cons of wolf reintroduction, for instance.”

Trueblood’s email address for matters relating to the magazine is [email protected].

The next issue of the quarterly publication is expected in August and will be focused primarily with hunting.
