Floy tags (also called "anchor", "dart" or "spaghetti" tags) are used to document movement and location of tagged fish. If you capture a fish with one of these tags that say "ODFW The Dalles" followed by a number, please notify us by entering the information on the tag return link above or call 541-296-4628. We will respond to you with the tag history and associated information about the fish you captured. Should you capture a wild summer steelhead in the Deschutes River with an orange tag, we ask that you not worry about the tag number and please release the fish as quickly as possible.

Please fill out this form with your tag number and contact information.

*Required for processing.
