A Small Victory for American Reach Redbands

This paragraph was copied and condensed from the Upper Columbia Blogspot - Good friend and fellow Upper Columbia advocate,  Steve Bird's blog. Steve and I called concerned anglers to action on this topic a couple months back.....Somehow, someway our voices were heard in addition to others!

Beginning in May, Lake Roosevelt American Reach fishing regulation will reflect the increase daily kill limit of Walleye, currently 8, being increased to 16 in an effort to reduce predation on net-pen raised and native Kokanee and Redband Rainbow trout, as well as other natives. You folks who took the time to drop a comment to the WDFW, pat yourself on the back, your voices over-rode a strong spiny ray lobby fearful of losing their favorite fish.  More to come on the specifics of the slot limit etc...... Will keep you updated.
