FISHING — An angler survey is underway at Moses Lake and Potholes Reservoir in Grant County.

 Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife surveyors are randomly selecting anglers at various access to learn more about the two fisheries. 

Ceel clerks are checking anglers about 16 days a month through October.

Questions they ask include time spent fishing, fish targeted and caught (both harvested and released), fish lengths, and county of residence.  

This effort is the first comprehensive creel survey on these waters in at least five years.
