Rewards For Catching Squawfish

Thu., April 17, 1997

Beginning May 19, anglers once again can earn money by catching squawfish in the Snake and Columbia rivers.

A reward program funded by the Bonneville Power Administration pays anglers $3 for each specimen more than 11 inches long. The program runs through Oct. 5.

Anglers must register at stations along the Snake and Columbia before fishing and follow rules before reporting back to the stations with their fish.

Last year, BPA paid anglers $602,489. Info: (800) 858-9015.
