$50,000 is swimming in Lake Pend Oreille
Fifty walleye tagged to promote fishing
Idaho Fish and Game has tagged 50 walleye in Lake Pend Oreille - and anglers who catch one can turn it in for $1,000. In addition, non-tagged walleye can be turned in for a chance at winning the drawing of $100. It's all part of an effort to reduce the surging walleye population that could be threatening the lake's kokanee. The walleye were released March 1, so get fishing!
Another fishing event coming up is the K&K Spring Fishing Derby, put on by the Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club April 27-May 5. For more information, check out LPOIC.org.
