For, I'm Eric Granstrom. As a follow up to my report last Thursday, a huge thanks to Joe Barrett for hooking me up with a great replacement piece for the fender on my boat trailer. I can't even tell it's not the original piece! Now, onto fisherman being too good for their own good. The Department of Fish and Wildlife will end the current sturgeon fishery on Lake Roosevelt July 31st. At the beginning of the season, there were approximately 10,250 white sturgeon available for harvest in Lake Roosevelt to non-tribal anglers over the next several years. By July 31, recreational anglers are expected to have harvested approximately 3,500 white sturgeon. Due to higher than anticipated catch, the department is closing this fishery earlier than planned this season to allow for additional sturgeon fisheries on Lake Roosevelt in the coming years. For those of you reading today's report on Facebook, you can see the success of a fishing buddy Del Barber. This guy is a kokanee fanatic! But since they opened a sturgeon fishery in May, he's been on them since. I asked how the kokanee fishing has been on Roosevelt, he doesn't know. Until next time, Good Fishing!
