Lake Pend Oreille: No reports but some news. Fish and Game to study the catch rates, survival and abundance of rainbow trout in Lake Pend Oreille
Anglers on Lake Pend Oreille are asked to watch for tagged rainbow trout they may catch during 2021-22 and report tagged fish numbers to Fish and Game. Biologists are launching a new research program to study the angler use of the fishery.
The study is dependent on anglers reporting where and when they catch tagged fish and whether the fish was harvested or released. Every reported tag number provides valuable data that helps biologist understand angler use, harvest and more information about the survival and abundance of rainbow trout.
