Welcome to the iFish Data Portal

I Fish Data Portal Update Spring - 2020


  • Reminder: Save often. We do not have auto-save at this time and so you should be saving after every few entries, especially if your internet is not consistent.
  • Remember we have a real-time status report for items that are currently being worked on as well as a list of what’s been completed. You can view this listing anytime here or by accessing via the "Report a Bug" menu.
  • If you have a question or need something ASAP, please call or email Kim or Tommie! You do not have to submit a bug report for simple clarification or help with a specific problem.

What’s New with the Portal:

We have a new blog page for Portal users on the IFishIllinois site. Please visit this page to see what’s new and improved with the portal here.


PLEASE be very specific in your bug reports. For example, if you’re reporting that you created a sample and something happened, we need to know specifics: the waterbody, the date, the site visit. We try to recreate exactly what happened and we also search the database to find the record with the issue. We can’t do that without all the information.

As always, if you have questions, please contact Vic Santucci at IDNR or Jeff Stein/Kim Stanhope/Tommie McNamara at INHS. If you have a bug to report with the system, please click on the "Report a Bug" menu item. These are monitored daily.
