Tribe sets bounty on northern pike

A tribe is implementing a temporary bounty on northern pike as it studies cutthroat trout predators. The Coeur d'Alene Press reported starting Oct. 1, the tribe will pay anglers for the first 1,000 northern pike caught on the southern portion of Lake Coeur d'Alene and turned in at a Heyburn State Park Headquarters check station. Tribe spokeswoman Heather Keen said the Catch for Cash program was created to enlist anglers in gathering more data on the impact of a growing northern pike population in the southern portion of the lake. The program could be extended after May/Associated Press. More here.
