FLY FISHING — Okay, so I made a little fun in my column last week of a colleague's excitement over finding a single salmonfly in downtown Spokane.
The discovery pales to the days when clouds of salmonflies fed a Spokane River teeming with trout.
But here's an encouragng response from Mike LaScuola of the Spokane Regional Health District's
Environmental Resources Program:
I had to respond to your column today about Jim Kershner finding a salmon fly. I just thought I would let you know that on the roof of the Health District building I routinely check an air monitor and I have found two salmon flies on recent occasions…Maybe the river is cleaning up a bit.
