Comment sought on walleye change
OLYMPIC – Public comment is being accepted on state fishing rules, including a change to liberalize the daily limit for walleye at the mouth of the San Poil River.
The walleye change would increase the daily limit for walleye to 16 fish on the waters of the San Poil River inundated by Lake Roosevelt (the San Poil Arm) to decrease the overabundant walleye population and to align regulations with those for Lake Roosevelt.
AA public meeting is planned for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, at the state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Spokane office, 2315 North Discovery Place, Spokane Valley.
