Need to report a tagged fish? All you have to do is complete the below form.
If the fish is of legal length/species to harvest, you will be able to keep both the fish and the tag. If the fish cannot be harvested you may remove the tag to keep or release the fish with the tag intact. Reward tags will be clearly marked "reward." To claim the reward, the tag must be verified by either North Dakota or South Dakota wildlife officials.
Tag certificates are generally sent to anglers within 2 weeks of reporting. However, during periods of exceptionally high tag returns, catch certificates will be sent as soon as possible in the order that they are submitted If requested, information about the fish can be sent to you as well.
Thanks for your help in the management of South Dakota's fisheries.
