What is Operation Game Thief?Operation Game Thief is a private, non-profit organization that works in cooperation with the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Warden Service which pays rewards, if requested, to citizens who turn in poachers or to individuals unlawfully introducing non-native fish species to lakes, ponds and streams of Maine. To report acts of poaching, you can call toll-free within Maine at 1-800-253-7887 ( 1-800-ALERT-US ). Out-of-state callers can call 1-207-287-6057 . It is important to note that callers do not have to reveal their names or testify in court. Reward amounts vary based on the severity of the case but normally range from $100.00 to $1,000 for the most flagrant poaching cases. Rewards of up to $2,000 are paid for information that leads to the arrest or summons being issued to individuals unlawfully introducing non-native fish species into Maine’s waters. All of the monies that support this program come from donations from concerned sportsmen, sportswomen and citizens.
