Fishing report: Thursday, July 23

Horsethief is open to public fish salvage through Oct. 20. Fish and Game will begin draining the reservoir in early September to rid the lake of invasive bullheads, which were illegally introduced. Under salvage rules, all size and bag limits are lifted, meaning licensed anglers can keep any and all fish. Netting and snagging are allowable methods of fishing — firearms, chemicals and electricity are not. It’s an unfortunate situation, but anglers might as well stock the freezer rather than let all those fish go to waste. The bullheads are edible, too. Clean and prepare them as you would a catfish.
