So long Monday! It’s #TroutTuesday! And better than the news that Monday is over is the news that Redband rainbow trout and other fish may get a little more protection in Washington State with action scheduled by the Washington Fish & Wildlife Commission this weekend, January 9 - 10 on 2015-16 sportfishing rules that include a Columbia River Basin Stream Strategy. Meanwhile, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists are working with partners to fill information gaps about redbands in Lake Roosevelt, the Spokane River, and other waterways, to better manage these unique fish.
