WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Reviving the kokanee fishery at Lake Pend Oreille is attracting more than fishermen.
A good number of bald eagles are congregating in the Bayview area to hunt spawning kokanee, and those eagles are attracting bird watchers.
Lake Coeur d'Alene's spawning kokanee also are attracting bald eagles to Wolf Lodge Bay. BLM counted at least 40 bald eagles there last week. No official count is being conducted at Lake Pend Oreille.
