Spokane Tribe offers bounty on Roosevelt walleyes

FISHING -- Word is out around the Big Horn Show that the Spokane Tribe has issued a bounty on walleyes payable to tribal members who bring in spawning-season fish from Lake Roosevelt, apparently from the Spokane Arm.

Washington Fish and Wildlife Department officials confirm the tribe has some sort of bounty in place, but the regional fisheries manager with the details has not been available.

The Spokane Tribe has not yet returned a called made this afternoon.

Stay tuned.

While I'm awaiting word from official sources, Andy Walgamott of Northwest Sportsman magazine has a little more on the issue.
