FISHING -- Brent Nichols, Lake Roosevelt fisheries program manager for the Spokane Tribe, will discuss the walleye fishery on Lake Roosevelt and detail a new walleye tagging program for the Spokane Arm in a program for the Spokane Walleye Club at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 26 at the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council auditorium, 6116 N. Market St.

Some anglers blame state and tribal fish management for the demise of the lake's walleye fishery, but biologists say the walleye have been overpopulated.
