The Division of Fresh Water Fisheries needs volunteers who are willing to share their time, energy and knowledge to help conserve our fisheries resources and to teach others to fish.
The FWC is divided into five administrative regions (see map), each staffed with representatives of the divisions and headed by a regional director.
The Northwest regional office is open Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Central). All other regional offices are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Eastern).
To report wildlife law violations anywhere in the state, 24 hours a day, call the toll-free Wildlife Alert hotline: 888-404-FWCC (888-404-3922).
