FISHING – Anglers can sign up to get a $5 reward for each northern pike caught in a targeted area at the south end of Lake Coeur d’Alene starting Thursday through May 31.

Coeur d’Alene Tribe researchers are using $12,000 in payments to encourage anglers to turn in all pike they catch in a designated area for studies on abundance and impacts of pike.

Fish turned in with implanted tags are worth $50-$500.

Details will be posted at a check station at the Heyburn State Park headquarters.

Info: (208) 686-5302.
