FISHING – EWU Sportsmans Club is trying to organize a fishing derby for bass and perhaps trout on Badger Lake for mid-September.

The lake is proposed for a rotenone treatment in late fall to restore its traditional trout fishery. A decision on the proposal by Washington Fish and Wildlife officials is expected in September.

For updates on plans for the fishing derby, contact Nick Barr by email, nicktbarr@hotmail.com.
