FISHING -- Steelhead enthusiasts have until Sunday to donate and boost a juvenile steelhead research project on tributaries to the Clearwater River. The Clearwater-Snake Rivers Chapter of Trout Unlimited has received a $3,000 grant sponsored by Orvis and Trout Unlimited to study juvenile steelhead in...
Anglers in North Idaho who catch chinook in Spirit Lake can help fisheries researchers by dropping off a tissue sample at drop boxes being installed at one or more boat access points.
No one has influenced so many facets of Inland Northwest fisheries as Allan Scholz during his 35 years at Eastern Washington University. The 67-year-old biology professor is transitioning into retirement, leaving a legacy that would rival Mark Few if fisheries science were a ball sport featured on ESPN.
Tribal and state fisheries researchers landed a big incentive this fall to continue their work on reviving white sturgeon numbers in the Columbia River upstream from Kettle Falls. A sturgeon, 9 feet long and weighing 507 pounds, was captured and released by Colville Confederated Tribes fisheries staff in September near Northport.
Reports that fishing is dead in the Pend Oreille River are greatly exaggerated. Despite the recent assault on northern pike, the toothy predators are still there in low numbers, and probably always will be.
The Spokane River, and some of its native inhabitants, were in the spotlight Tuesday and Wednesday as a wide range of scientists, policy makers and industry leaders convened for the annual Spokane River Forum. The redband trout – the river’s canary in the mineshaft – took stage at Centerplace in Spokane Valley for a couple hours among other presentations. The topics – a delicious assortment to a scientist – ranged from managing sewage overflows to setting fish consumption rates.

Some anglers were disturbed this month to read that fish biologists are using nets to survey fish populations at Lake Roosevelt. The method is used across North America and has nothing to do with the state’s current proposal to liberalize catch limits of walleye and bass in the reservoir and some other waters, said Chris Donley, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife inland fisheries manager.
The catch was the fisheries biologist’s equivalent of landing a state-record fish. It was as memorable as discovering a new lure that catches a fish on every cast.
Anglers aren’t the only people stalking fish in Lake Roosevelt. Researchers have several projects under way in the 130-mile-long reservoir using radio telemetry to plot movements of kokanee, walleye and sturgeon. Walleyes have been followed as they hunker nearly 100 feet deep near the reservoir bottom during the day before rising to within 5 feet of the surface during night.
