The catch was the fisheries biologist’s equivalent of landing a state-record fish. It was as memorable as discovering a new lure that catches a fish on every cast.
Fisheries research is being conducted on several species in North Idaho, including studies on rainbow trout that may help fish mangers adjust stocking schedules to give anglers the most bang for their buck. Surveys have helped biologists understand that Hauser Lake is becoming less productive for trout as it ages.
Each fall, steelhead that have swam upstream from the ocean around 500 miles reach the Riggins area of the Salmon River on their way to spawning areas.

Read Landers' story in Sunday's Outdoors section.
