Walleye daily catch limit to increase on three Eastern Washington waterways

State Fish and Wildlife has decided to increase the walleye catch limit on Lake Roosevelt, and two other rivers in Eastern Washington.

The daily walleyelimit will increase to 16 walleye with no size restriction for Lake Roosevelt, Lower San Poil River and Lower Spokane River beginning Monday, April 1 until further notice.

The Lower Spokane River from mouth (State Route 25 Bridge) upstream to 400 feet below Little Falls Dam will also open for walleye fishing Monday, April 1.

The state Fish and Wildlife Commission recently approved new fishing regulations designed to increase harvest on a growing walleye population in Lake Roosevelt and Lower Spokane River. The rule changes will cut walleye predation on native fish populations as well as the number of small walleye.
